More head and upper body shots. She really is short, about 12 inches not counting the black lacquered base. She was made in Kyoto and in the way that is typical for pre-Edo dolls. From my understanding, the layering of the hair, along with the tight looking bottom of the kimono where the feet should be is a specialty amongst doll makers from that city.
