These figures coincide with the long form of the word doll; i-dol. The ningyo's function is to provoke, invoke, fear, revere and inspire. They are wearing an eboshi, or court cap, which accentuates their noble decent. The category of gosho doll that we decided to re-create is called Tachiko.
The doll we chose is a gosho doll, meaning from or of the Palace of Kyoto. The gosho doll is wearing a hat that represents it's of noble descent or a member of the court, thus the hat is known as a court cap. The doll is carrying a rope which symbolized good luck. The figure would use the rope to pull in ships carrying treasure and other fortunes. The gosho is 10'' with three points of articulation. It is packaged in a unique window box, including spot UV coating for extra detail and a silver foil logo.
