A year ago today I posted about kokeshi dolls on my blog. They are Japanese dolls that were sold to visitors to the hot springs in the Edo period, and are traditionally made of simple wood shapes which are then hand painted.
I recently came across these beautiful modern versions made by Andrea who lives in Argentina. She loves to paint, draw and make things by hand and these beautiful creations combine all three. You can see more images on her Flickr page and you can visit her website to see more of her creations here.
