This doll is the first of a series I made, called Talisman Dolls. Each of the dolls has a special meaning to me. I also teach a class in how to make beaded dolls.
This particular doll, Mother Nature, reminded me of all the trips I've taken to Yosemite. The greens of that beautiful valley are represented here as well as Mother Nature's prolific abundance. Note the baby which stands for all the young animals produced in the wild.
