Naruko Kokeshi Patterns

.

.

Now that I'm collecting more traditional style Kokeshi, one thing I've started appreciating more are the head/hair variations you can see in the traditional Kokeshi patterns. Naruko style dolls typically have wide, curved, comb shaped bangs, "side locks", and a tuft of hair on the top of the head with (what looks to me like) red chrysanthemum flower or petal designs radiating out from it. These are the Naruko style Kokeshi in my collection and just see the differences in all but the pairs! I've always loved the fact that every doll is unique, but I'm learning to appreciate more than just the differences in the faces.
