Antique Japanese Terracotta Statue
SCHOLAR

Hakata Doll
Meiji, circa: early 20th century
h.8 in.(20cm.) X w.7 in.(18cm.) X d.6 in.(15cm.)
Condition: Excellent

The tradition of Japanese doll-making can be traced back to two artists, the first beginning around 1601. From that time the center of doll making has been Hakata, with other famous dolls coming from the Kyoto area. Molds for the ceramic dolls are as fastidiously made as for fine sculpture, and each doll requires the work of two craftsmen; one to finish the exacting task of realistically painting each detail . Here a scholar ponders the content of his book, his expression in melancholy contrast with that of the blissful kitten asleep in his lap.
