Annawan is part of a series of art dolls inspired by the ceremonial costumes of the world's tribes, past and present.
They are for wall display only and not intended as toys.
The headdress is inspired by the feather headdresses worn traditionally across central and south America, but made from pleated fabric. His intricate cape has tiny fabric shapes, wooden beads and tiny shells sewn across it in bands and was inspired by some examples of Native American Indian and West African clothing which are decorated with small amulets of bone, shell, leather, bone and metal.
The fabrics used are a mix of woven, block printed and plain cottons from India.
Created entirely by hand by Abigail with great love and care, they are highly detailed and beautifully finished.
This is a LIMITED EDITION piece, only 3 will ever be made, each one a unique artwork in itself. As such variation from the photos shown should be expected, as is the beautiful nature of handmade work.
She comes with a small loop sewn into the back of her head to hang her by and measures 39cm height.
