About the work
Showa doll 1 (Showa Phase I): The doll with the red hat and large ribbon is from the end of the Taisho era to the beginning of the Showa era, reflecting the growing interest in exoticism. For many women who were children before and during the war, these dolls, commonly referred to as "Bunka Ningyo" (cultural dolls), represent an unforgettable memory of their childhood. After the war, these Bunka Ningyo was revived, and they enjoyed continued popularity until the late 1960s.
