Woodblock Print Stuffed Bird - Japanese Green Woodpecker
The rustic and charming Japanese green woodpecker (kitsutsuki) is woodblock printed on cotton and stuffed with rice husk. The rice husk gives a perfect amount of volume and firmness to bring the expertly shaped and printed creature to life.
The Japanese green woodpecker comes with a short thread loop at the chest and when hung on a wall, it looks like a real woodpecker perched on a tree trunk. A red tag on the string says kitsutsuki on one side and "hand printed woodblock by Shinkougei" on the other. It gives a nice accent to any bird lover's room; it also works as a Christmas tree ornament.
