Kokeshi made in a single copy by the award-winning artist Yuko Yamazaki. Born in Tokyo in 1956, she started making kokeshi at the age of 35, she was the only pupil of the great artist Takashi Yoshida (1948-2007). All her works are created in a single copy and stand out for their femininity and refinement in the details, for their elegance and for the strong emotions they are able to convey. She says that she creates her works with the aim of giving new life to a tree that had lost it and to shake the soul of those who are admiring them.
The name of this kokeshi is Sakurakomachi which in Japanese means "beauty of the cherry trees". The artist chose this name even before making the kokeshi, thinking of it as a cute name that reminded of spring. This kokeshi depicts a young woman on whose face shines all the joy and emotion she feels in admiring the beauty of cherry blossoms.
Every year in spring, on the occasion called Hanami (literally “looking at the flowers”), the Japanese celebrate the ephemeral beauty of the sakura, one of the symbols of Japan.
The wood used for its creation is Mizuki (Japanese dogwood).
It comes with a wooden plate with his name in Japanese, the artist's stamp and signature and the original box is included, signed and stamped by the artist.
Misure: 26cm x 15cm
