Art Dolls Only - 4 Elements Challenge

Its time for the ADO challenge! You can find all the links to the challenge dolls
here.

Here's mine, finished I think:

It's Earth and Fire. We know fire in its devastating, destructive form. But in the right place, properly managed, it can promote regrowth and regeneration. The flame coloured doll is the fire part - the small faces surrounded by leaves at the base are the regrowth, regeneration and hope for the future.

Mine is a bit late, although it is still Friday 17th here! I had some laser treatment on my eyes yesterday, to forestall the onset of glaucoma, and everything is still a bit fuzzy!

Thee are some detail shots of the stitches etc. in the previous post.
