Woodblock Print Stuffed Bird - Blue-and-White Flycatcher

Regular price $ 19.00

The rustic and charming blue-and-white flycatcher (ruri) is printed on cotton using a woodblock and stuffed with rice husks. The rice husks give the perfect amount of volume and firmness to bring the life-sized, expertly shaped and printed creature to life.

Ruri are migratory songbirds native to Asia. Adult male sport glossy blue feathers on their backs and tails. A red tag on the string says ruri 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.
