Humans: sometimes it seems like all we do is harm each other. Then you stumble on a video like the one above and remember that sometimes we use our powers for good. In it, a traditional Japanese kokeshi doll seems to appear out of thin air. But in fact, there's a skilled craftsman behind it all, one Yasuo Ozakazaki.
Currently in his sixties, Ozakazaki learned the Noruko method of doll-making from his father, according to the folks at TetoTetoTe, the online folk art showcase that produced the video. Onto a spinning rod of wood, Ozakazaki inserts notches and precise designs with the steady hands of a surgeon. It basically looks like magic. But it's real. Because, humans.
