Kokeshi Doll Book

From my carved archives: Japanese kokeshi nesting dolls were the inspiration for this tiny booklet that contains 4 blank pages. The face is made from a carved stamp I designed. Then I created a template to make the body and pages. I used origami papers to decorate the front of the book, then stamped and cut out the face and glued it to the head area. A bit of pink marker was used to add color to the cheeks. I like carving oriental images and you'll see some more in the coming days! Enjoy!
