A Dollmaker's Perfection

I love the  simple beauty of this video. This artisan,  from Japan, has spent a lifetime learning his craft; learning all the skills required to create his art to perfection. It begins with the selection of the wood, then the turning of that wood on a lathe, then the minimal hand movements with a carving blade that shapes the wood to perfection. Then, he uses extraordinary hand-eye coordination with a simple brush to turn the shaped wood into a doll with lovely features.
