Kubi Furi Tora; Bobbing Head Tiger, Okayama Prefecture
Kubi Furi Tora; Bobbing Head Paper Mache Tiger from Nishi-Oodera, Okayama Prefecture. H.6.5"(16.5cm) x L.6.25"(16cm) x W.2"(5cm.) Painted paper mache, ca. early 1970's. Excellent condition WITH ORIGINAL BOX. Paper mache folk crafts were popular in Nishi-Oodera since the mid-late Edo Period (1600-1868.) This particular style of tiger with high hip, curled tail, heavy black stripes, and fierce countenace has been produced since about 1897. This tiger image has been sold in the Inland Sea region as a charm for protection against disaster, for home tranquility, for good crops, and for good business. It is a wonderful image for the year of the Tiger, 2010, and for all times.
