|Traditional Kabuto on YAMANASHI box with more complex kabuto and stands hidden inside|
Hisako TANJI got the brilliant idea to take Akiko YAMANASHI's Hinamatsuri box doll (diagrams in NOA #391) and, instead of the doll, sit a traditional kabuto on it.
It makes a nice container for my smaller complex kabuto models, including some stands and tables. The size of the box is a 21 1/2" x 21 1/2" square. I spray glued the flimsy, decorative Yuzen/Chiyogami paper onto a stiffer Canson-type paper. The traditional kabuto is a 20 1/2" x 20 1/2" square of mulberry paper spray-glued onto stiff paper as well.
