The drawing refers to a dress pattern in the middle of 18th century in Europa and a Kimono pattern in the same era in Japan. These two patterns are layered. Japan has opened its ports as a nation in the middle of 18th century and then our lifestyle has been dramatically changed after starting importing European culture.
