“Momiji Dolls were originally inspired in 2005 by traditional folk-art in northern Japan called Kokeshi. These dolls were Carved from spare pieces of wood about 3 inches long and hand painted, they were usually made by farmers. The dolls typically consist of a head and elongated torso representing the body and legs as a single piece. Momiji dolls are different from the traditional Kokeshi dolls in that they are made from resin and contain a small space in the base. inside the base is a small folded card for a secret message or greeting. Momiji dolls are often designed by fresh new designers and are known for their work with colleges and art schools worldwide”
