Family doll portrait.

More on my friend's Japanese aunty from Kanazawa.
The family portrait was probably photographed in the 1930s. The portrait was then replicated in the form of 3D handmade fabric dolls! The detail is absolutely amazing and even shows things not visible in the photo, such as the kimono's linings. Kanazawa aunty was happy to pose for me with the doll portrait of her younger self.
