Vintage Kokeshi dolls which are estimated to have been created in the 1970s or 1980s.
Wood is carefully selected to have the right qualities, the round base-shape is made with a lathe before hand-tools are used to create the finished doll-shape. Lastly the doll is painted with pigments and waxed. Because of this no two dolls are alike.
Kokeshi dolls have become an icon of Japan since they reflect Japanese aesthetic sensibilities with their simple, minimalist yet elegant design.
The two largest two dolls is 32 cm tall.
The four smaller dolls are between 25 cm and 18 cm high.
