Sosaku Kokeshi by Takeda, Norio | Aki Kaze | Signed
We find many interpretations of the seasons, and this particular piece depicts autumn. The maple leaves are called ‘kouyou’ or ‘momiji’ in Japanese. Their beauty has been expressed in poems, songs, and on decorative objects, and is beautifully incorporated into the design of this doll. With the exception of her face, the majority of the wood is painted in variations of the color red with a traditional headdress and top notch. Condition: Wonderful condition with no fading on any detail, and stamped and signed by the artist. Dimension: 11-0”h.
