Title:
Japanese Dolls - Tsuchi-Ningyo
Description:
The phrase tsuchi-ningyō simply points to the fact that the dolls are made of clay.  Japan has a long tradition of clay figurines starting with the archaic dogū and haniwa, to those made in Fushimi, Hanamaki, Inuyama, Koga, Sagara, Tsutsumi, and at present, the brightly colored Hakata figures.   National Louis University Archives has three different types of Japanese clay dolls.  All of these, except for one, have wire inserted into the doll to help it stand.  Of these wired dolls, several are large (about six inches in height) and the remaining are small.  It is possible that these two different types are parts of the same set.  The miniature clay figurines might be Keshi-ningyō, but more research is necessary.  The one exception (the clay figure without wires) is possibly a Fushimi doll, but again more research is necessary to confirm this.
