***** What is Karokeshi art? *****

Karokeshi is the combination of the words Kokeshi and my own name.
It's a cross between the Japanese wooden dolls, Babushka/Matryoshka and Ninja warrior.

They are sweet (well, most are, some are a bit sour and quite naughty) and always ready to make their owner smile.
Each Karokeshi sculpture is a unique piece of art, they add a special and fun touch to any decor.
