A National Treasure!

Susane give PWOC board members these darling dolls for a gift before she LEFT US.  They are each different and show various people playing or working.  This is the one I got. 

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).

I loved these when I saw them and purchased one! I wish I would have been able to go back and buy a second one!
