Dolls of Japan exhibition opening at Bahrain National Museum

Doll making has long been a traditional craft in Japan – and a new exhibition at the Bahrain National Museum is set to celebrate this next month.

Between October 13 and November 13 you’ll be able to see some of the finest dolls across a number of styles as well as regional and creative pieces.

From pyramid-shaped Hina dolls made for the annual doll festival in March to the mechanical Karakuri puppets dating back to the 17th century, there’s plenty to see and appreciate.

Far from being just a children’s plaything, doll-making is a well-respected craft in Japan and the intricate designs and unlimited styles are something to be admired.
BHD1 (entrance fee to museum). Wed-Mon 10am-6pm. Bahrain National Museum, Shaikh Hamad Causeway, Manama (1729 8777).
