These used to be decorative little dolls, dressed up with ruffles and hats, yes, they had arms and legs and curly hair, I found them at the .99 cents store
I made these little dolls inspired by the technique used by Patricia Anders a gifted artist with tremendous imagination, if you want to be enchanted, check out her site, she has magnificent works of art http://www.patriciaanders.com/ ) using porcelain dolls altered with gesso and acrylics.
