The Kokeshi Dolls May Not be Soft and Cuddly, But They're Awesome

The Kokeshi dolls above are inspired by traditional Russian dolls, but seem to have more life to them. Designed by Violeta Hernandez, these are perhaps more statement pieces than toys.

The life that appears to be present in these Kokeshi dolls is found in the details. The eyes are painted to look like real eyes, rather then being mere dots. This gives the Kokeshi dolls an almost creepy appearance that is quickly forgotten once you take in their whole exterior.
