Story Spirits

 
 
 
          

As I studied Native American mythology, I found stories that suggested more abstract figures than the realistic, sculpted dolls I usually make. I developed an archetypal woman's figure in the Iroquois tradition that could represent Everywoman and illustrate the myth with the beads, fur, feathers, and fetishes used to decorate the doll.

In addition to teaching Story Spirit classes, a book of 25 of the myths I've collected, and a pattern for the Story Spirit doll is available at srdolls@aol.com.  The cost of the book and pattern is $22, which includes postage & handling.

Kits to make "White Buffalo Woman" and "Han, the Spirit of Night" as Story Spirits are also available.
