Kokeshi Dolls

Kokeshi dolls are originally from northern Japan. They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and an enlarged head with a few thin painted lines to define the face. The body often has a floral design carved or painted in various colours and covered with a layer of wax. One characteristic of Kokeshi dolls is their lack of arms or legs. The bottom is usually marked with the signature of the artist.
