The Infinite World of Japanese Dolls: From Religious Icons to Works of Art
|The Shoto Museum of Art
In Japan, sculptures in the shape of humans have been made since ancient times and have existed in people's lives in various forms up to the present day. A diverse range of dolls is presented here, from cursed dolls, dolls for dolls, living dolls, mannequins to contemporary art. The exhibition introduces 100 dolls and captures aspects of Japanese 'dolls' that have lightly leapt across the boundaries of various fields.
