Yesterday I went to a kimono store with two of my friends, Yaso and Mako. We saw an amazing kimono being made, and the nice old lady then gestured to the back hallway and asked, "Do you want to see the dolls?"
THE artist is Juttaro, and the dolls blew me away. Even the faces are made of cloth, the eyebrows tiny strings. We saw two (and the rest are pics from a book). He works with ghosts and spirits and archetypes, buddhas, saints. He does them all. And they all hold an eerie presence, a breathless pose, and they held me (green and dying) for what seemed like hours. I liked taking pictures of them. The lady doll has blue eyes and a blue mouth to show that she is dead.
