Red is part of my Archetype doll collection for 2019. Based on Carl Jung’s concepts of archetypes, Red represents the “innocent”. She is blissfully unaware of any danger in the woods, her sweet and trusting nature gets her into trouble. Her tale documents some harsh lessons about learning to trust your intuition and setting boundaries.
Constructed from a hand dyed linen and filled firmly with Canadian wool, Red's face and boots are hand painted, her delicate hair is needle felted using mohair fibre. She has antique mother-of-pearl button joints which allow her arms and legs to move adding to her charming character. Her bloomers are made from a sweet cotton print, her dress was created with linen, and is not removable. All of my art dolls are heirloom quality and would be a lovely addition to any collection. Red is approximately 9.5” tall and comes with a linen cape trimed with silk and handmade basket, perfect for foraging in the woods. Art dolls are are not intended for small children or unsupervised play. Each of my dolls comes signed and in a cotton drawstring bag.
