Through this doll, the artist shows his ability to create and select a form that best interacts with the natural characteristics of the wood, in turn seeking a harmonious blend of tradition and customs. A simple facial expression draws the viewer into the character of this young girl. The piece has the artists stamp on the bottom of the doll.

Vintage Condition: “As is” with some scattered light wear or stain that does not affect the design, and retains the original craft/workmanship. The neck of the doll was cracked but professionally repaired.
