vintage shikishi kokeshi painting
Add some charm to your life in more ways than one with this cheeky kokeshi painting. Immaculately inked with stunning attention to detail, a charming daruma doll rendition such as this is seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making them a popular gift of encouragement. 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 daruma's magnificently mischievous expression.
