SHYNESS

Rare find of refined vintage modern *kokeshi simplified wooden doll titled as 'Hajirai' (lit. 'Shyness') made by a kokeshi artist, Kenichi Murakami (1929-1991), c.1970-80s, approx. H 38cm (14.96), categorized into ‘Sosaku kokeshi’ (or 'Shingata kokeshi', lit. ‘Creative kokeshi doll’) based on the traditional form and style but with more feminine elegance and quite next level perspective. Engravement of 'Kenichi' at the bottom. Attached with an original paper box (written as 'Hajirai' in Japanese), though in broken and damaged condition as is.
