This is my first Bunka doll. 58 cm tall.
Bunka doll has an orthodox method of making. But I don't know it.
So I made it in my original way. This is a fake Bunka.
Bunka doll is a sort of Japanese doll.
Not so traditional.
I heard that Bunka dolls are very popular in 1920 - 1960.
'Bunka' means 'culture'. I don't know the origin of the name.
In that time, people must have admired foreign dolls and wanted to make European dolls by their own.
Bunka dolls are never clad in kimono. Every doll puts on bonnet and one-piece dress.
Funny face is like Betty Boop, isn't it?
Now Bunka doll is also loved as retrospective item.
Maybe you think they are cute.
