The Conversionette


More about the pieces I got from the estate below. The Grandparents were missionaries in Japan and had bought back quite a few kokeshi dolls. I also found these lovely little wood nun figures in the garage but grouped together with the kokeshi dolls they were kinda like a missionary expedition that had bitten off more than it could chew, and a homage to their origin. The line drawings are very fine. I love them
