Milky eye Oiwa
€70.00 On sale
Oiwa is possibly one of the most chilling ghost stories to come from Japan, her grotesquely disfigured face caused by a botched poisoning attempt by her husband, as her revenge came back to haunt him for the rest of his life appearing in many forms and places to remind him of his cruel deed. Her once beautiful long black hair and fashionably blackened teeth for the era, now very nightmarish in appearance.
Solid resin sculpture faintly tinted with Egyptian indigo and pigment that glows in the dark, dressed in beautiful Lotus themed japanese patterned fabric with gold accents, long straggled synthetic hair, and a haunting bulbous pale eye.
Measures approximately 14cm from top of head to bottom of kimono
Can be hung on the wall by one nail or hook from its attached metal hanger
Signed on reverse side
