This is a very rare vintage kokeshi by Iguchi Satoru. It is not his usual design at all with the recognizable face and hairstyle. Instead she is made from dark wood and has limited lines to sculpture the kokeshi or decoration. A special doll with a soul of her own. A beautiful and powerful piece!
Iguchi Satoru is a major award winning artisan. He won the most prestigious Prime Minister Award.
