Sculpture of a musician wearing a kimono with a floral print and a fan in her hand. It is part of a group of seven dancers and musicians.

Following the Compañía de Indias' first trading ties with Japan, a marked fondness for chinoiserie developed in Europe in the 18th century resulting in the Japanese market producing prototypes for export. Much of the Soria collection, to which this figure belongs, is from this source.
