Hinagata ( Hina Dolls’ exhibition )

It seems that Hinagata ( Hina Doll shaped cutouts )  originates from ‘Katashiro’, cutouts shaped like human bodies used in incantations in ancient times.

Hinagata represents ‘ small items’ , ‘ cute little things ’and they have been loved by many people.

The form, ‘ Hinagata ’is the most Japanese-like representation which has been refined by the long history, tradition, and time.

I have come to think about expressing myself by placing clothes in molds.

I am sincerely looking forward to your visits.
