Woodblock Print Stuffed Bird - Pheasant
The rustic and charming pheasant (kiji) is woodblock printed on cotton and stuffed with rice husk. The rice husk gives a perfect amount of volume to bring the expertly shaped and printed bird to life.
The stuffed pheasant is decorated with various plant patterns. With a warm gaze and a neck craned backward, it looks as if the bird is watching over a pack of baby pheasants. On the bottom is a sticker with the maker's name in Japanese. It gives a nice accent to any bird lover's room.
