I not only love the Sosaku type of Kokeshi but I really enjoy the Traditional old world Kokeshi. These types (11 in total) consist of patterns and designs that have been handed down through family generations of Kijishi (Kokeshi wood workers). Details from which wood to use, how long to let the wood dry (some of which take 3 years!) and what paint colors to use, facial features such as type of nose, eyes and hair are all part of the family tradition which Kijishi proudly adhere to. These Kijiyama Kokeshi are by Sasaki Haruo who was born in 1931 his master (teacher) was Tsuneharu Ito. They are depicting beautiful Sakura trees.
