The Doll as a Messenger: The Body's Language
Words and images by Elinor Peace Bailey
The doll is a powerful tool. It teaches cultural messages, discourses on political issues, trains the young to nurture, and speaks of the desire of humans to procreate. It stands in for gods and offers reminders of their presence. Odiously, when humans make the work of their hands into an object to worship, they delude themselves into idolatry. That is a fool’s mission. But the doll as a tool, when used within its limits, communicates as few other tools can. I continue adding to my own understanding. May this add to yours.
