Handmade Amulet Doll (15 cm)

Some amulet dolls were used for healing. These dolls made of curative herbs, such as oregano, meadowsweet, thyme, tarragon, lemon grass.

It is interesting to note that fabric dolls did not have their faces featured. The custom was associated with olden believes, in particular, with the talisman role of a doll as a magic object. Those ‘faceless dolls’ served as churingas: the absence of a face showed that the doll was an inanimate thing and thus was not accessible for evil powers to settle in it. The doll dresses were always bright-coloured and embroidered with meaningful magic symbols.
