Description

The traveling exhibition “NINGYŌ: Art and Beauty of Japanese dolls” was prepared as a successor to our highly popular traveling exhibition “The Dolls of Japan: Shapes of Prayer, Embodiments of Love.” Under the title NINGYŌ, which means “human shape” in Japanese, the doll culture that has been cultivated over the long history of Japan will be introduced through a total of 67 carefully selected dolls, divided into 4 sections: “Ningyō to pray for children’s growth,” “Ningyō as fine art,” “Ningyō as folk art,” and “Spread of Ningyō culture.”

Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the dolls on display!
