|Cloth doll of fabric scraps, second hand jewellery, yarn hair. Approx. 14 in. x 7 in.|
I named her after a fictional East Indian goddess, Anamika Devi, found in a novel I was reading, The Selector of Souls, by Shauna Singh Baldwin. Another day, another book, and likely she would have turned out to be another sort of doll ...or perhaps still be waiting to come into being.
Too bad I'd previously thrown out a pair of arms that had been gathering dust in a basket. Really, I should have known that one can always use a spare set of arms.
(There's an interesting short interview with SS Baldwin on the link I provided above, telling about her novel.)
