Gail's Momiji Doll

Gail's doll is a paper mache pocket for the body that's covered in wrapped fabric, beads, and fiber embellishments. The feet are painted gourd seeds. The embossed and painted polymer clay head is mounted on a piece of painted cardboard that slides into the pocket body. So you pull the head to remove it and see the message.
