That’s a dangerous thing to do to a condemned doll, though Grape reports that one of a monks started doing it after carrying a dream of Okiku seeking him to do it. Nobody has been means to explain because a doll’s hair keeps growing.

Some sources also explain that a systematic hearing of a doll suggested that a hair is indeed that of a tellurian child, nonetheless we have nonetheless to find any justification of that. Even some-more ridiculous is a explain that if we get tighten adequate to Okiku and demeanour into a half-open mouth, we can see a flourishing teeth…
