Japanese Doll Head Man Hina Matsuri Japanese Doll Festival D12-16 by FromJapanWithLove

12.00 USD

Here is a very cute Doll head meant for Hina Matsuri. He is made from clay. I was very lucky to find a set of vintage but brand new (never used) doll heads. These were meant to be used to make dolls for Hina Matsuri or doll's festival but I was told that instead they were put away (maybe the doll maker retired but I'm not 100% sure about that) and therefore are in pristine condition.

About Hina Matsuri
Platforms with a red hi-mōsen are used to display a set of ornamental dolls (雛人形, hina-ningyō) representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period. The custom of displaying dolls began during the Heian period. Formerly, people believed the dolls possessed the power to contain bad spirits.

He measures 5 cm long to the end of the neck and about 10 cm around.
