On March 3, many Japanese celebrate Hina-matsuri, or dolls festival, by displaying Hina-ningyo, or Hina dolls, in their rooms.

Today, I hang a scroll of a Japanese painting of tachi-bina, or standing hina dolls, in the tokonoma of the living room.

The hanging scroll was painted by Kunii
Ōbun (国井応文, 1833-1887) who was the leader of the Maruyama school painters in the late Edo period and in the early Maiji period as a grand grand son of Maruyama Ōkyo (1733–1795).
