Surprise the doll lover in your life with this Japanese kokeshi doll, which has been carved from wood, then decorated with delicate paint strokes by hand. Kokeshi have been made using the same techniques for over 150 years and are known for their characteristic shape (simple body with no arms or legs). This doll was made by woodworkers in the Gunma Prefecture of Japan from mizuki wood, a tree that is used for making the most traditional kokeshi. She wears a red kimono, which has been painted with a floral design and nods her head as if to say "Hello." Pair her with her white kimono sister doll to create a joy-sparking gift set.
