This is a spectacular kokeshi by Kato Tatsuo. She is in the form of flower. A very natural look of a tall elegant lady makes her stand out. Never seen this work before. Tatsuo's work is always outstanding. This is museum quality and a large version!
Kato Tatsuo started making kokeshi in the 1960s and studied under master Sansaku Sekiguchi. He is very popular and a major award winning artisan.
