Kokeshi are dolls originally from the Tohoku region in northern Japan. They are handmade from Japanese maple, Cherry or dogwood. Most dolls have simple trunks and a large head with a painted face. Their limbless bodies have floral or striped designs painted in red, black, green, purple and yellow. The bottom is often marked with the signature of the artist.
