Kokeshi made in a single copy by the award-winning artist Toa Sekiguchi. Born in Gunma prefecture in 1942, he has won numerous awards, including the "Minister of Education Award" in 1985, "The Minister of International Trade and Industry" and the highly coveted "Prime Minister Award" in 2001.
The name of this beautiful kokeshi is Shizuka, which in Japanese means "silence, tranquility". On her wonderful kimono, embellished with thin layers of gold leaves, Ume "plum" flowers and an Orizuru, a paper crane, have been engraved. The plum blossom in Japan is very popular because its flowering occurs early, even when there is still snow. For the courage with which this flower challenges the rigors of winter, it represents hope and resistance to life's difficulties. The crane, on the other hand, is a symbol of longevity.
The wood used for its creation is Keyaki, one of the finest woods. The kokeshi is 28cm tall and 13cm wide.
It comes with a wooden tag with his name in Japanese, the artist's signature and stamp and including the original packaging signed and stamped by the artist.
This is a beautiful collector's item, works like these are usually made for display in major contests and exhibitions in Japan.
The kokeshi is in excellent condition, with only a slight imperfection of the wood in the upper part (visible in the photo).
