Sosaku Kokeshi by Shibuya, Shinraku entitled: “Daruma | Bodhidharma”


Dimensions: 9-0”h

This rendition of Daruma, like many in Japan, are made using black and white paint to create the impression. Artists working in the sumi-e’ style of painting achieve a suggestion of detail by using different intensities of ink and line work. Unpainted areas of the doll give form and volume. Only on rare occasions did Shibuya-san sign his religious dolls.

Vintage Condition: “as is” with some scattered light wear or stain that does not affect the design, and retains the original craft/workmanship. Any discoloration, chipping/cracking, surface wear or structural damage noted.
