€ 20
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 bird is part of the Japanese wild bird series and depicts a Japanese robin (こまどり), a migratory bird that spends most of the year in the southern part of the archipelago and is considered one of Japan's three main songbirds. Cotton and rice hulls. A wonderful doll, an exquisite example of Japanese craftsmanship. 13 cm x 6 cm x 3 cm
