A symbol of luck and a traditional toy handcrafted in the Miharu district of Fukushima prefecture. The horse is traditionally painted red with traditional decorations representing the ocean and blossom. Stiff palmetto hemp is used for the tail and mane. The origin of these horse dolls lies in a legend from the Heian period (794 to 1185).
It is remarkable that a piece of wood cut simply into a cubist shape and decorated with primary colors is able to express the essence of a magnificent horse with such elegant simplicity.
