Collector's note – Descriptive qualities/standard characteristics/ornamentation styles:

This 16-1/2”h Kokeshi entitled, “Iwate Yuki-onna | Snow Woman”, incorporates both a beautiful drawing of a young lady traversing through the snow, and an accompanying song about the long, hard winter. The following song is recalled:

“Snow and hail falling thickly,
falling steadily and piling up,
they keep falling nonstop,
a happy dog is running around 
the yard joyously,
the cat is sleeping by the stove.”
