Kokeshi with Violet, Red, and Black

Kokeshi with Violet, Red, and Black


Kokeshi hand painted with violet, red, black, and a touch of light green.

Kokeshi dolls' shapes and patterns are particular to a certain area and are classified under eleven types. They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and head. One characteristic of kokeshi dolls is their lack of arms or legs. They are charming folk art pieces. “They showcase the Japanese talent for nuanced decoration, paired with graphic rendering of human characteristics – all accomplished with a delightful economy of means.” -Kokeshi: Wooden Treasures of Japan, a Visual Exploration 

Height: 9.5" Head Diameter: 2.5" Body Diameter (at base): 1.5"
