This is really beautiful and I wanted to share the Kokeshi dolls with my website viewers.
We have a few of these Kokeshi dolls although similar to the ones on this website : tetotetote-sendai.jp/
Hand made things are becoming more and more rare as people cant see the craftsmanship that goes into an item such as this and most people only see the price, not the love and attention which has gone into these items.
All most of us see these days is the price of some cheap, mass manufactured Chinese knockoffs which will undoubtedly fall apart after 5 minutes. So revel in this video of a master craftsman at work.
