Japanese wooden dolls, 2 vintage Kokeshi by the important artist Kouson Sato (A.K.A. Komura), one of the few women to make creative kokeshi.

Recognized as an accomplished artist, Kouson worked out of her studio in Fukushima-ken, Kuwaori-machi. Her dolls are easily recognized by wonderfully soft and gentle faces, with the bodies’ artwork ranging from simple but elegant sumi-e’ brush strokes to beautifully painted autumn leaves, camellia, (winter rose), or the chrysanthemum, and bamboo.

This stunning doll bears a maple leaf motif. Associated with peace and serenity of the world's elements, Japanese maple trees represent balance and practicality and are called "kito" in the Japanese language, which means "calm," "rest" or "at peace."

Maple is also a symbol of strength and endurance. In Japan, it's a custom in autumn to see the changing color of maple's leaves – in a similar way as they do in spring when cherries blossom. The reddish maple leaf symbol of autumn.

Kokeshi are simple wooden dolls that have been crafted for more than 150 years as a toy for children. Japanese dolls, originally from the northeastern region (Tōhoku-chihō) of Japan. Kokeshi doll making is now widely considered to be a Japanese art form that requires a trained and skilled artisan to produce high-quality Kokeshi dolls.

They are treasured as a good luck charm. Opinions vary greatly regarding the meaning of kokeshi dolls and their spiritual significance. Most interpretations are centered around children, with some believing that kokeshi represent the wish for a healthy child, and others that they bring children closer to the mountain spirits. Many people also agree that they were originally exchanged as tokens of friendship, with messages concealed within.

This is a unique set of Japanese creative kokeshi, the expression on the face is very sweet and gentle and is underlined by beauty of maple leaves. Under the body of the kokeshi are the artist's signature. These lovely dolls would grace any collection. T
