Art Dolls — The Ancient One

The ancient one hold histories, keeping stories alive by sharing.  She is fragile and strong at the same time.  She is soft and yielding, yet hard as a rock. The ancient one knows more than you yourself know about you and she surrounds you with her soft love, her soothing whispers and her 5 eyes.  A tiny heart, older than the moon lives on her back, an endless repository of wishes and dreams.  She safeguards these for the future.

    what a happy grandmother… but I think she is a little bit strict with her grandchilds – am I right?
    The colors make me thinking this – can’t help!
    Happy weekend – happy renovation.. next week I have to help hubby with plastering the walls in our ugly stairecase..since month it is in progress….

    You could really go into business with these little dolls and their own sweet story to go with them, they bring these loveable pieces to life!

    This can only be Grandmother Tua’s sister, and, therefore, mine! My sister is the oldest and most definitely the wisest in our family. Another great family member, Corrine!

    Your words could have been spoken about my mother (91 years old) so fragile, yet strong, her heart maybe little in size, but so big in doing, she haven`t got 5 eyes ,as she barely can see, but she knows all ,even so !!
    Love your ancient one, her softnes and her big grin ,
    xo, Dorthe

    A doll with an interesting story and a very interesting face. How imaginative.

    Feels like my mom. So wise, sensitive and strong.

    Her backside looks like a well loved quilt….you know the style I mean – is that candlesticking or some such stitching on the back? Anyway, adorable!

    Beautiful, I’m staying in touch this time. Have you heard from Deborah of “while I was waiting”? I miss her and her work.
