Exhibition “The Dolls of Japan”
Exhibition “The Dolls of Japan”
Description

The Museum of Applied Art in Belgrade, in cooperation with the Embassy of Japan in the Republic of Serbia and the Japan Foundation, will present a unique exhibition entitled “The Dolls of Japan” to the Belgrade audience, which will be open on Wednesday, June 15 at the Museum of Applied Arts in Belgrade and will last until 4 July.

Japan nourishes the exceptional culture of dolls and it has a long tradition of their manufacture. Each doll bears its own meaning and has its own purpose, which are deeply connected with everyday life. This centuries-long appreciation of dolls has resulted in the belief that dolls do not represent merely children’s toys, but that they are works of art worthy of admiration.

In Japan, dolls are highly appreciated forms of an artistic craft. Doll exhibitions represent specific competitions where craftsmen show the finest manufacturing techniques. Contemporary craftsmen use proven old methods in the creation of traditional Japanese dolls, which are particularly appreciated by their owners. Thus, this exhibition offers a representative overview of the diversity of Japanese dolls and fineness of their manufacture.
