JAPANESE HOUSE GHOST



 THE FIGURE IS LIFE SIZED AT 4' 7" TALL



 



A BEAUTIFUL MODEL OF A LIFE SIZED JAPANESE HOUSE GHOST STOOD ON A WHEELED STAND. HER FACE IS CRACKED AND AGED AS IF IT WAS MADE FROM CERAMICS.

THESE WONDERFUL LIFE SIZED FIGURES (OR DOLLS), WERE MADE AND STOOD IN THE CORNERS OF TRADITIONAL JAPANESE HOUSES. IT WAS BELIEVED THAT THE HOUSE ITSELF WAS ENDOWED WITH A SPIRIT AND THESE DOLLS WOULD KEEP THE HOUSE COMPANY, WHEN THE OWNERS WERE OUT. THEY HAVE BEEN USED IN MANY JAPANESE HORROR STORIES OVER THE YEARS. SOMETIMES THEY COME TO LIFE AND FALL IN LOVE WITH THE MAN OF THE HOUSE. SOMETIMES THE MAN IS MARRIED AND SHE HAS TO KILL HIS BRIDE, TO WIN HIS HEART. OTHER TIMES, SHE BECOMES TOO PROTECTIVE OF HER HOME AND THE OCCUPANTS BECAME INVADERS.......
