Asteroid 1047, Geisha, was discovered on November 17, 1924 by Karl Reinmuth at Heidelberg, Germany. It has a period of 3 years, 130 days and is about 6 and 2/3 miles in diameter.

It was named for an 1896 play called The Geisha, a musical comedy by Irish-born British playwright and journalist Owen Hall (real name, James Davis). Sidney Jones was the main composer of the score, with additional songs by Lionel Monckton and James Philp.

The meaning of asteroid Geisha seems to be: embarrassment, etiquette (Damien Foor); to try to make someone over or reform someone, to be another's creature or flunky, subservient, obsequious, sycophantic, slavish, well-trained, expecting to be waited on hand and foot. .

The glyph for Geisha is mine and consists of the kanji characters for the word.
