Kurama-jishi

Jen Bronco made this doll. This is a doll for high level class. She is the first person who learned how to make this doll from me. It turned out well. I think that it's beautiful.

She is Yoshitsune's wife whose name is Shizukagozen. Yoritomo who was Yoshitsune's older brother stormed off to Yoshitsune's residence in Kyoto to destroy his younger brother. Yoshitsune couldn't take her with him. She is holding his spear and thinking of him.
