The Pillow Book’s whole subject matter is based on Japanese calligraphy painted on the body.  I imagine it would feel like a form of massage.  A light brush massage.  The cooling paint would be an interesting feeling.  How you make an entire movie out of this would be a daunting task.  I guess that’s why the writer put in the underlying sexual theme.  This form of body painting reminds me of the more popular art of Henna tattooing.
