Kabuto Box

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.
