I’ve been asked to make an illustration for an art¨gallery in Niigata (Japan). The theme was “Hina Ningyô”, the dolls used during the japanese doll’s festival called Hinamatsuri. This illustration will be exhibited from February 24 to March 21 in Craole gallery ( ギャラリー蔵織) -> craole.exblog.jp/20349584/
About Hinamatsuri :
Hinamatsuri is a Doll festival celebrated each year in Japan, on March 3rd. This is a day to pray for young girls’ growth and happiness. Families set up a special step-altar on which to arrange their Emperor and Empress dolls, called “hina ningyô" in Japanese. It is said that the dolls have the power to contain bad spirits.
