Product Details

The rustic and charming varied tit (yamagara) is woodblock printed on cotton and stuffed with rice husk. The rice husk gives a perfect amount of volume and firmness to bring the life-sized, expertly shaped and printed creature to life.

Although no longer in practice, yamagara used to be trained to draw fortune telling slips at Japanese shrines. A red tag on the string says yamagara 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.
