Iyo Ittobori by Nagumo
Hand-carved Hina dolls that give you a sense of warmth
May doll by Iyo Ittobori "Nagumo". A three-tiered decoration set with a helmet, Momotaro, Kintaro, and a carp streamer. This gorgeous May doll decoration uses pure gold leaf for the painting, and the stand and folding screen are decorated with 1,000 cranes in jacquard weave.
Each motif has an auspicious meaning, so please pray for your child's health and success in life and celebrate the festival.

[Kintaro] With the wish for you to become a healthy and kind-hearted person.
[Momotaro] My wish is for you to grow up healthy and strong, and to become a popular person. The five-colored streamers have the meaning of exorcising evil spirits.

The five-colored streamers have the meaning of exorcising evil spirits.
[Kashiwa Mochi] The leaves of the oak tree have the characteristic that the old leaves do not fall off until new buds appear, which is why it is associated with ``continuing the family lineage'' and ``prosperity of descendants.''
All of Nagumo's works are handmade by skilled craftsmen. As the first generation Buddhist sculptor, he has inherited the form, and his unique gentle colors and compact, streamlined scenery are elegant and Japanese-style, and fit well with modern interiors. The wood used is Hiba wood, which has a soft grain and a beautiful aroma. The gentle scent of natural wood envelops you in a warm atmosphere.
Nagumo's wood carved dolls are made in the order of wood carving, carving, and coloring, and finally the eyes are added.
A luxurious folding screen decoration with a thousand paper cranes made of jacquard weave.
The two stages of rough carving and detailed finishing are carefully carved using more than a dozen types of small knives and chisels. After carving, the head is polished to a soft surface.
The coloring process involves two stages: base coating and finishing details, and skillfully uses more than 20 different brushes to carefully color even the smallest details. Finally, the eyes are added and Nagumo's wooden carved doll is born.
Since all finishing is done by hand, the finish such as coloring and face finish may not be exactly the same as the photo. Please note.
Careful down to the smallest detail
Everything from the decorative stand to the folding screen is carefully crafted. The decorative stand is a storage box, and all the parts fit into the stand, so it can be stored compactly and does not take up much space, making it ideal for gifts.
