She has hypnotized me.
Her music moves me
Her arms enfold my soul
I love her hair
I found her at the thrift store for $3.50. I was going to give her to my friend, Kristin, who has the largest collection of dolls I've ever seen. But this Devi goddess put a spell on me and would not let me give her away. With a minimum of research I'm thinking she's a Durga, or Kali, or Shakti doll. Those are names of the consorts of Shiva, the supreme God of the Hindu religion.
Can you tell me anything more about her? I respectfully request any corrections or knowledge you can offer after seeing these pictures.
It looks like she's playing a sitar. But I'm not sure.
Is she riding Mother Goose?
