'Dot' Kokeshi Doll

$44.00 $39.50

Contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama is known for her love of color and especially dots. Her Obliteration Rooms have viewers “obliterating” gallery spaces with dot stickers, and the artist herself is often pictured wearing some sort of dotted attire. So, it’s only fitting that her incredible creativity would inspire makers around the world. The Dot Kokeshi doll by Sketch.inc features a figure clad in color with an outfit to match the name. And just like Kusama, who is continually reinventing otherwise ordinary spaces, Kemp has reimagined the traditional Kokeshi doll. The wooden figurines tie back to Japan’s Edo period and are associated with gestures of friendships. So, how will you help define this new type of Kokeshi?

Details

  • Dot Kokeshi doll measures 5.7" tall. 
  • Doll is made out of superba wood and is not suitable for young children due to the gold pigment used in the paint.
