Girls day coloring pages

The primary aspect of Hinamatsuri is the display of seated male and female dolls (the obina (男雛) and mebina (女雛), literally “male doll” and “female doll” respectively), which represent a Heian period wedding, but usually described as the Emperor and Empress of Japan ), usually on red cloth. These may be as simple as pictures or folded paper, or intricately carved three-dimensional dolls. More elaborate displays will include a multi-tiered doll stand (雛壇, hinadan) of dolls that represent ladies of the court, musicians, and other attendants, with all sorts of accoutrements. The entire set of dolls and accessories is called the hinakazari (雛飾り). The number of tiers and dolls a family may have depends on their budget.
