Kokeshi Lady Red
From Japan with Love' seems to tell us Lady Red, a wooden doll handmade in the purest tradition of Japanese craftsmanship. Madame Mo called this limited series of Kokeshi: a kokeshi to say 'I love you'. So, what could be more natural than to propose a red kokeshi, color of love, fire, sun, and sacred in Japan! We never say enough to the people we love that we love them isn't it?
The history of the Kokeshi
These beautiful wooden dolls that do not bend have been part of the Japanese handicraft landscape for over 150 years. They are given to children, but they also represent a unique decorative piece and even a fetish for all lovers of the land of the rising sun. Turned in wood that has dried for several years, they are then hand painted and varnished or waxed. They are all unique and when they are offered, we sometimes read that they are a token of friendship. All over the world, these little wooden dolls fascinate and are often found in large numbers among collectors! More on the magazine : des Kokeshi pour dire 'je t'aime'
