Vintage Japanese mingei okiagari-koboshi doll

 

‘Getting-up little priest’ as a Japanese traditional folk doll of unique type with rare simplified face (without mouth) in fine proportions, made from papier mache and designed so that its weight causes it to return to an upright position if it is knocked over again and again… Considered as a good-luck charm and a symbol of perseverance and resilience. In used condition as seen. approx. H 14 cm (5.51in)
