SWAMP WITCH - Medicine Doll
Her creations are woven from moss and sticks.
Her medicine has been passed down to her from the grandmothers of the swamp. She uses roots, swamp mud and ground bones in her salves and potions. There is nothing that she’s afraid of because she is the dark and the light. She is one with everything. She resides alone but she’s never truly alone. The trees and the animals speak to her and she speaks to them. They are each others medicine.
I created this doll from driftwood and salvaged textiles. Her face is made of clay, her hair is humanely sourced wool and she is adorned with a talisman made from a polished coconut shell.
She measures approximately 14” x 3.5”
Please note that she is fragile and is not a toy.
She has a wire hanger on the back so she can be hung on a wall.
