Vintage Sosaku Kokeshi entitled: “Michi noku | Snow Country” by Aida, Seihou


Dimensions: 6-0”h

This wooden creation is beautifully constructed in three parts: the head, the lower body, and the ‘Hanten’, which unites and surrounds the other two elements. The entire body of the figure celebrates the wood’s natural qualities and coloration, giving depth and a three-dimensional aspect to the form. The natural simply painted work details the head, face, and hair with a faint red bow. Side-hair fringes with red bows give a human interpretation and expression to this young girl's figure. There is an impressed stamp of the artist on the bottom of the doll. 

Vintage Condition: Excellent, unrestored, and completely intact and retains the original craft/workmanship. The piece meets all the standards of collectible Folk Art.
