"Aragula" by Helen
Aragula, Guardian of the Garden, is a doll made of various pieces of wood from my garden: Lilac arms, maple legs, a pine bodyand head, and forsythia fingers. The face is acrylic modeling paste, painted over with acrylic paint. The hair is paper ribbon and strips of bark. Polyfilla was poured into her fabric boots & the legs set in so she would stand freely. Her clothing is hand-made - the bodice is a rough linen and the skirt and sleeves are polyester drapery fabric (which I know isn't very natural - but the colour & 'drape' worked for me).
