Japanese kokeshi doll kimono temari ball design
Exuding a soft and endearing aura, this Japanese kokeshi doll is the artistic creation of Masae Fujikawa. Its handcrafted design renders it a one-of-a-kind piece, a testament to the time-honored craftsmanship passed down through generations. Hand-painted and elegantly dressed in a kimono adorned with intricate floral patterns, the doll also holds a temari ball. These decorative balls, once children's playthings, have come to be regarded as symbols of good luck and fortune, making this kokeshi not only a work of art but also a bearer of positive wishes.
In the Edo period, kokeshi were made to express wishes for healing, good harvests and good health for children. Today, this decorative object is offered to wish your loved ones happiness and blessings.
