A Cord of Three Strands (Daruma Doll series) by dosankodebbie



A Cord of Three Strands (Daruma Doll series) by 

Another etegami in my Daruma Doll series. This one is part of a sub-series that throws together Daruma Dolls (representing the male members of the family) and Matrioshka Dolls (representing the female members of the family). I painted this one to celebrate my upcoming wedding anniversary, and as a gift to my husband.. This verse from Ecclesiastes was the theme of our wedding ceremony 35 years ago.

I am a professional Japanese-to-English translator and an Etegami artist. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper.
