Joy Spirit Worshippers!

Spirituality is such an inspiration for this series of Art Soul dolls I am creating called the "Spirit Worshippers". They are art healing dolls inspired from Camilla La Mer's Art Soul Doll workshop I attended in Denver, CO last year (see The Journey: Dolls for A Soulful Purpose for more details).

Because of what is happening all over the world, Haiti, the economic crisis in the US, the frustration of the snow in the Maryland, DC and Virginia area, I created this doll series to speak to comfort within ourselves. These dolls are designed to bring joy in times of sorrow, love when there is hate. Each doll calls on whatever spirit you believe in or that brings you joy. Hands are raised to worship and harness the spiritual energy to keep us moving.

I am trying to decide whether or not put clay faces on them. They are a work in progress. Let me know what you think?

Clay faces would be interesting... but I like the blue mosaic looking one just as she is ;)

They're very pretty without the faces, but the faces would be nice as well. I guess I could go either way. Doesn't help much, huh? :-D
