Dogu(earthen figures)

I tried making Dogu while working. COOL !!

People  in the Jomon period are great !!  It is a masterpiece.

Before making, “I can make it easily!”. However, how difficult it is !!!!

Next time, I’d like to make something again or draw something.

By the way, according to Wikipedia,

“Dogu (earthen figures) are small humanoid and animal figures made

during the late Jomon period(14,000–400 BC) of prehistoric Japan.

Some scholars theorize the Dogu acted as effigies of people, 

that manifested some kind of sympathetic magic.

 For example, it may have been believed that illnesses could be transferred into the Dogu,

then destroyed, clearing the illness, or any other misfortune.”
