Dostoyevsky once wrote that pain and suffering sharpen a great mind. Well, my mind, more lazy than great, has been sharpened during the pandemic while forced to lie on my back for seven days with acute pain. As you know, I am not the type who can lie idle for very long. Even in stuck in my bed for several days I felt I had to find some productive outlet.
In my interest and research with traditional doll making I discovered that I could make a simple, miniature doll without any other tools than my hands and some fabric. The result was a whole collection of 60 individual dolls and proof of Dostoevsky’s postulate.
