Altar Dolls

Handmade and one of a kind, these dolls are intended to serve as both spiritual tools and works of art. Each doll is built around a fabricated heart, the recipe for which has been handed down through generations of practitioners of the folkways of the Afro-American spirituality of New Orleans. Each doll comes fully ritualized, needing only to be woken up by its owner. Instructions for waking up each doll are included with the purchase.
