TOKYO Teshigoto

2020 Excellence Award
suzuzumo(Tsukada Koubou)

This doll is made with the traditional techniques of Edo
kimekomi ningyo (wood and cloth dolls), using sumo wrestlers
as the motif. It is a lucky charm that combines sumo, which has
been practiced as a Shinto ritual since ancient times, with a bell
treated as a sacred object. The soft sound of the bell echoes
when the doll is moved, making it very heartwarming combined
with the cute expression.
