This little guy is the star actor in a blog post on the website of my brother Charlie, a talented photographer. He exhibited his great sense of humor by using this kokeshi in a series of three photos to discuss depth of field and how selective focus can help the photographer tell a story. I won’t spoil the plot of his story here. You’ll have to check it out on his site. Thanks to my brother, this kokeshi has joined my collection as well as a marvelous hanging scroll (kakemono) he created using these photos.
