This strange doll emerged as just a head for the longest time. I stuck two glass beads into random holes in the stone and it became a face. I didn't want to use adhesive to keep the "eyes" in, so wire came into play and before I knew it, she reminded me of the misshapened faces of the doctors and nurses in one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes "The Eye of the Beholder". Kinda creepy. But her entire form looks kind to me.

This was a birthday gift to my mom :) I suppose one could say this is not exactly a "traditional" type gift: a beady flower bouquet, mixed with found junk, sticks, and a "dead tortoise." Well, this is true, but my mom's happy, generous and loving spirit is not exactly traditional--thank goodness for me ;)! LOL My mom is one of my favorite junking parnters...the only person who will go with me on my desert junk--I mean TREASURE(!)--hunts this side of the Colorado! She also loves Day of the Dead...
Made from: found car ashtray, washer, also wire, sticks, glass beads, and acrylic.
