The rustic and charming waxwing (renjaku) 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 expertly shaped and printed creature to life.
A red tag on the string says renjaku on one side and "hand printed woodblock by Shinkougei" on the other. The waxwing comes with a thread loop on its head for hanging. It gives a nice accent to any bird lover's room; it also works as a Christmas tree ornament.
