€ 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 bombycilla, otherwise known as Japanese waxwing, a migratory bird that spends most of the year in southern Japan. Cotton and rice hulls. A wonderful doll, an exquisite example of Japanese craftsmanship. 15 cm x 7 cm x 4 cm
