Japanese Akita Traditional Kokeshi Wooden Doll seventh generation mei "Matagoro". Splendid set of 3 Matagoro Yashima Kokeshi dolls.

These vintage wooden dolls will make a statement in any rooms.

Well over two hundred years ago, a Kiji-shi by the name of Matagoro harvested Sugi, (Cedar), in the mountains of Nangai-cho in the Akita Prefecture. He was a highly-skilled carver who enjoyed working with ‘Sugi’, as it was an aromatic, soft wood with a very visible grain. This is his most famous Kokeshi which celebrates Mt. Nangai-cho and the Cedar tree that is loved by the Japanese.

His was the first generation Matagoro doll, and is believed to be one of his original conceptions of this doll’s shape and simple form. He enjoyed incorporating Haiku (Poems), into his creations. Original model aspect very wabi-sabi as the view or thought of finding beauty in every aspect of imperfection in nature. It is about the aesthetic of things in existence, that are “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”.

The craftsman's signature and stamp is inscribed on each doll's body.
