Playing with dolls

Seeking inspiration for my summer art project - we need to bring it in on the first day of the Foundation Year - I collected natural material from our little corner of Nova Scotia. Play is so often the best way to bring on the muses, so I just fiddled around with some of the bits and pieces I had collected, along with the beautiful wool I've been using for the afghan. These little totems took shape in a few sessions over the course of a week. Who appeals to you?
