Art Doll — Grandmother Tua

Even though I have not posted much about my Guardian dolls, I have been busy in the background creating as they reveal their stories to me.  Meet Grandmother Tua.  She is a Seer.  Her many eyes see the world from different perspectives to bring the whole picture into focus.  She is soft and yielding and made from old materials that show the wear of history and stories of their own.  She sees and brings comfort at the same time.  Her stitchy smile is benign and sweet and her stitched cheeks show her age and wrinkles.  Grandmother Tua is the cheek to rest your weary head upon and sleep and wake to a new perspective.

    You have so perfectly created this grandmother figure, Corrine. Especially that “soft and yielding” part. Made me smile. While neither of my grandmothers were physically soft and yielding, that is what this grandmother provides for her grandchildren. Both physically and “of heart.” I must say that she is also aptly named!!

    Oh.. this doll has such wisdom. Soft like our “sito”.

    Grandmother Tua might be soft and yielding, but she has some hard and spiky bits too….like most grandmas.

    Oh, Grandmother Tua has those “eyes” like my grandmother.
    Sweet, but looked right through you…!
    (don’t think you are resting your neck enough by the looks of your art)!

    HMM. Reminds me of my grandmother, who had eyes in the back of her head. And she was all-seeing, too, I fear, Love this doll.
