The technical aspect of a doll made of one piece of wood is successfully evident by the beautiful forming of the figure. The motif, is, of course, the Camellia, (Tsubaki), and the faces and red noses carry the feeling of impishness. The doll has a large ‘Mage’ style hair treatment with carved lines on both sides of the hair to give it depth. A stamp is on the bottom which identifies the artist as Sanpei.
