€ 18
Add to cart
Traditionally crafted in the small city of Takayama, these dolls are hand-painted using woodblocks. The color is fixed to the raw cotton at high temperature and each doll is then filled in with rice hulls and hand-sewn, so that every one of them is genuinely unique. This little bird is part of the Japanese wild bird series and depicts a Japanese nightingale, a bird that lives throughout all Japan and one of the favorite motifs of Japanese poetry due to its wonderful song and call, which is viewed by Japanese as a herald of springtime. It is also for this reason associated with the ume blossom, as in this beautiful doll. Cotton and rice hulls. A wonderful doll, an exquisite example of Japanese craftsmanship. 12 cm x 6 cm x 4 cm
