Why this is a
Masterpiece

Chosen and explained by Akiko MORI "Along with the Family History". The way of celebrating Christmas by adding the ornaments gradually and decorating dolls with a Christmas tree is quite similar to that of the girls’ doll festival in Japan. His wife, Hedwig, decorated a Christmas tree every year. Since she died in 1992, Christmas has not been celebrated in the family, and. these ornaments were stored in a box for ten years.

History of the Object
This set of Christmas decorations belonged to the Wolz family in the Pfalz of Germany. The ornaments tell their family history during the 1970s and the 1980s, as some were bought when they traveled to Greece and Austria, and some were hand-made when they celebrated Christmas at a ski resort.
