This outstanding Kokeshi wooden doll will make a statement in any room and will be a very unique gift for your friends or family.

This lovely doll would also grace your personal collection :). This elegant kokeshi stands out for the refinement of the painting characterized by the sober and natural wood carving and painting style that give depth and intensity to the flower motif.

Additionally, the artist added the chatter work to texturize the top and bottom of the doll. A kokeshi to treasure. The expression on the face is happy and charming and is underlined by the red and smiling lips which are easily recognized as Kouson Sato style.
