Omocha – Traditional Japanese toys

omochadescription

Omocha was a small exhibition about traditional Japanese toys at Museu do Oriente in Lisbon. I took some photos, that you can see below, found lot’s of inspiration and fascinating things, like the poetic card matching game Karuta or the small wood animals.

The abstract, stylized quality of these cool toys, make you appreciate the use of simple shapes to build and show complex subjects like animals or mythic creatures.
