black and white kabuki face imprints with nested squares

An oshiguma is an impression of the kumadori (face make-up) of kabuki actors on a piece of cloth, usually silk or cotton, created as an artwork and memento.

Oshiguma are customarily made after the performance of a kabuki play, though not necessarily after every performance, and given as highly valued souvenirs of the event. A single oshiguma may have face-impressions from one or several actors, usually all from the same show, illustrating the make-up designs for major characters in the play. It may also include autographs, dates and additional inscriptions; sometimes other graphic elements are added to the design.
