attached horse cow doll

Tono City

Southern Iwate

Traditional craft dolls that were actively made in the Tsukumaushi area during the Edo period. After putting washi paper and Tono soil into a mold and letting it dry naturally, the top layer is layered and colored with pigments extracted from natural materials. The luster achieved through painstaking polishing is the result of a secret handicraft, and is unique to Tsukumagyu dolls.
