Woodblock Print Stuffed Bird - Sparrow
The rustic and charming sparrow (suzume) 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.
One of the most common birds in Japan, the stuffed sparrow is decorated with flowers. A red tag on the string says "hana (flower) suzume" 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.
