“The little girl cannot incarnate herself in any part of herself. To compensate for this and to serve her as alter ego, she is given a foreign object: a doll. It should be noted that in French the word poupee (doll) is also applied to the bandage around a wounded finger’ a dressed-up finger, distinguished from the others, is regarded with amusement and a kind of pride, the child shows signs of the process of identification by his talk to it. But it is a statuette with a human face- or, lacking, an ear of corn, even a piece of wood – which will most satisfyingly serve the girl as substitute for that double, that natural playting: a penis”
Simone d Beauvoir (The second sex)

A dear friend recently celebrated her birthday. Her current obsession is the colour pink and Kewpie dolls.

So I decided to make her a gift: a kewpie inspired doll:

wood, oil paint, found toys

I wish I had more time, because I wanted to add some pink feathers, and other detail.

She turned out a little too pink for my liking, but I hope A will like her.
