Japanese craftsman Yasuo Okazaki takes his time with his work, transforming blocks of wood into stunning Naruko Kokeshi dolls. In a time of machines, in a time of mass production, in a time of constant distraction, short attention spans, and shortcuts, this video by Te to Te to Te is flooring. The softest of splendid music plays while you watch the man’s expert hands, carve perfect shapes and paint immaculate details, all with a floating aura of tenderness. This video is my new therapy.
