vintage shikishi kokeshi painting
Brighten your life with a vivid and vivacious vintage kokeshi painting. Immaculately inked with stunning attention to detail, a charming kokeshi doll illustration such as this would have been produced as a souvenir for 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.
