The next few photographs are of wall art I call Spirit Dolls. The idea of spirit dolls can be found in cultures worldwide, and I come to my interest in them naturally via my background in the field of religious studies. They are made from paper clay, cloth, various trim, feathers, and sometimes small trinkets.The dolls are attached to cloth place mats that have been embellished with scraps of other fabrics. These single-doll pieces are approx. 12" x 17" and are $48-but be sure to scroll down to see the large spirit quilt.
