Story-Telling Figurines
Karokeshi Sculptures Are Full of Personality and Handmade Love

By: Natasha Suter (Apprentice) Apr 21, 10

Korokeshi sculptures are art innovations at their finest. A cross between the Japanese wooden Kokeshi dolls, a Matryoshka and a Ninja warrior, each of these tells a story and its name is unique to the creator. 

Big Helmet Head Art Shop in Washington DC is creating these cute and nerdy Korokeshi sculptures with custom splashes of hidden messages in the details.  All minimalist and simple in design, they are adorable to look at and display.

As a child, this artisan aspired to draw for Disney, but that never happened and she is quite content telling stories through her images and is currently working on her third children’s book.
