Hinamatsuri and dolls Vol.II

About This Project

Hinamatsuri and dolls Vol.II

It is in a traditional house in the Japanese mountains. There was an exhibition of “Hina Matsuri”, also called Doll’s Day or Girls’ Day. The second floor of the house there were Gogatsu Ningyo, Sumurai dolls of Boys’ Day . It is Japanese tradition for families with boys to display Gogatsu Ningyo, consisting of armor, helmet, sword and bow/arrows reproduced as art objects, which were once worn by brave Sumurai. At the end of the exhibition, the old ladies we offer the tea and cakes around the fire.

I filmed without tripod and without extra light, so it is not very perfect…
