vintage shikishi kokeshi painting

$98.00

Brighten your life with a vivid and vivacious vintage kokeshi painting. Immaculately inked with stunning attention to detail, a charming kokeshi doll rendition such as this would have been produced as a souvenir for eager travellers and onsen visitors. Painted on shikishi board, a specially prepared paper affixed to a hard backing and traditionally used for Sumi ink, Shodo calligraphy, or watercolour illustration, the paper's subtle flecking and bold, gold trim add a glimmer of glamour to this kokeshi's enigmatic expression.
