African Wrap Dolls
These are a couple of my African Wrap dolls I made. They are really fun to do and allows the creativity to flow. The story of these dolls goes way back to slavery times. Pieces of wire or wood were wrapped with bits of wool or cloth to make dolls for the children.Each doll wears a small mirror. African folklore tells this story.....If evil sees itself in a mirror it will run away.... so the mirror is like a protector or a good luck piece.
I apologize for my poor photography and the shadows in the picture!!!
