Karakuri (traditional Japanese clockwork dolls) at the Kyoto Folk Doll Museum crufti.com/kyoto-folk-dolls-mu


@AnnaGerber These are super cool. Do you now own several? :D

@ashkyd lol, no - I did not buy any dolls on this trip! Such adult.

However, I recently discovered that there are kits to build your own reproduction Karakuri - a fact that I am trying to forget.

@pori @ashkyd I think I need to make this my next 3d printed doll design goal

@pori @ashkyd oh my goodness I just discovered there is a detailed manual with schematics for many of these dolls published in Japan in 1796, and it has been translated into English. This must be done!
