Flower Designs

flowersColor Book Asian theme patterns for children, symbolic representations of nature including plants, vines, flowers, birds, animals, butterflies, clouds and other traditional, culturally significant designs patterns.

Creative Kokeshi dolls are handcrafted wooden Japanese Kokeshi Japanese Theme toys with a wider variety of shapes than the traditional designs, retaining the recognizable features of the round heads and (usually) limbless bodies. Traditional Kokeshi dolls originated during the Edo period (1600 to 1868). Creative kokeshi dolls appeared after World Way II. Creative dolls types have a variety of shapes and sizes plus the addition of hair styles and colorfully patterned kimonos.

The dolls are carved by skilled Japanese wood turners from seasoned cherry wood, Mizuko (dogwood) and Itaya-kaede (Japanese Maple). The doll shapes are created on wood turning machines in the same way furniture legs and spindles are carved.
 

The doll bodies are generally painted using bright, contrasting colors of red, black, and yellow, then hand decorated with symbolic representations of nature including plants, vines, flowers, birds, animals, butterflies, clouds and traditional, culturally significant designs.
