Here is an unusual Indian doll with a lot of personality and detail. She is dressed in a white dress probably for a wedding or first communion. The doll has an unusual face with big black and white eyes and very red checks. She has very specific black marks on her face and temples. She has black pigtails braided and a white ribbon tied to it. The doll itself is homemade I believe but I cannot determine what medium was used. Possibly paper mache? The face is smooth and the hands almost appear leather like except they do not feel that way. The hands are shaped but flat in shape. She is wearing a muslin dress with lace around the wrists and two rows on the edge of the skirt. It is gathered at the waist with a ribbon. One hand holds a lace gathered flower. The legs have leather sandals on them and the feet are very life like. Someone has even made gauze under panties for her. She has a net veil with lace around her forehead. It is attached to the dress with a long thread so it stays down in back. Shipping weight is 1 pound. This is a very unique doll that someone sculptured into a pretty Mexican Indian girl.
