This Take-ningyo makes the most of the beauty of both the straight line and the curve of bamboo such as Matake and Mosodake, which well expresses Noh or Kabuki with their wide range of emotions. It was after the second World War that craftspeople started making dolls which were similar to the present style. The name of this doll became well known all over Japan after MINAKAMI Tsutomu wrote" Echizen Take-Ningyo".
