Mostly inhabiting trees, the elves featured in Hayao Miyazaki’s famous anime masterpiece Princess Mononoke, are based on spirits in the Japanese folklore called Kodama. Portrayed as small, white humanoids and big, rattling heads, these tree elves have mask-like features and are known to possess mysterious super powers. They are known to seldom speak, and can be heard when a person dies. In modern times, when you’re about to cut down a tree that is believed to house a Kodama, then you’re expected to carry out a praying ritual to ward off misfortune.
This 5-piece set of mini-action figures is made of resin, and the solid finished product is luminous. The bright-green glow can last for hours in the dark. These vinyl dolls are unisex, and will make perfect gifts for both boys and girls fond of Princess Mononoke tree elves. Standing 2.5 - 3 centimetres tall, the mini-action figures are flammable in nature, so make sure you keep them away from extreme heat or fire. In yōkai depictions, it is believed that once a tree crosses the age of one hundred years, a divine spirit will appear and dwell inside it.
