Art of the Indigenous People of Hokkaido !

 by Kazu

It is said that each family of Ainu, the indigenous people in Japan, has their own pattern made of cloth, and sometimes leather. It is like a crest that belongs to a certain genealogy.
 One of the most famous carvers of the indigenous people in Japan Ainu said that he was not an artist but a craftsman.
He quit to go to grade school and started to carve the trunks of woods and produce thousands of sculptures for more than half century.
