Small Japanese paper doll

Japanese paper doll, pigment liner and watercolor, 8x5in.
I found this small (5cm) paper doll that my mother bought at a crafts fair. She was told that it was made by a lady in the outskirts of Buenos Aires where many Japanese immigrants settled to establish nurseries and flower businesses. I was curious about their history and from what I read most of the came from Okinawa. There is a  bilingual newspaper and several cultural centers.


  1. Cristina--Your rendering of the paper doll is so beautiful!


  2. Thank you Sonia. I like the Japanese aesthetics very much.
