As Susane explained....these are Washi Dolls. There is ONE lady left in Japan who makes this particular kind. She has been classified as a National Treasure. She lives north of us. She is over 73 years old and has already survived a major health crisis (can't remember if it was heart or cancer or what)....anyway this is my treasure, made by one of Japan's national treasures, given to me by a friend, leader who I treasure. You can read more about Eiko Ohyama here.
Guess who Stacia and I met yesterday?
We bought a signed book of her work...and , of course a doll (or so).
