On 3rd March, Japan celebrates Hina Matsuri, the Doll Festival. Girls receive Hina Dolls as birth presents, which are then used to form a Hina ningyo, a composition to be arranged on a kind of altar or against a backdrop to ensure a happy life for girls. The clothing is inspired by those used in the Imperial court during the Heian period (794-1185) and is characterized by the up to 7 layers worn by the empress. In former times, faces were made up with extremely pale colors and eyebrows were plucked, and instead two grey shadows were painted on the forehead.
