"Yayakw | Evening Glow”


Dimensions: 4-1/4” h

The beautifully detailed Kokeshi is made of Mizuki (Dogwood), celebrating the harvest season. We see summer grasses, cloud-filled skies in gold flecks, and textile patterns used as the central motifs. He uses the black lacquered form to suggest long hair. Toa definitely shows off his artistic, painterly abilities with beautiful creations in black, grey, gold and in this case vermillion to accentuate the Kimono. The piece is signed on the bottom.

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.
