Details

Japanese Ninyg? dolls have played an important role in the nation's art and culture for millennia – as talismans, objects of visual appreciation and playthings. Offering an analysis of the costumes, hairstyles, props and gestures of Gosho (palace dolls), Hina (Girl's Day dolls), Musha (Boy's Day dolls) and Isho (fashion dolls), Alan Scott Pate frames their stylistic and symbolic evolution within the context of the Edo period (1615–1868), during which the art of the doll flourished.
