This is a reliquary doll. A reliquary is a special container for relics - bones of dead saints, pieces of the one true cross, the nails Jesus was crucified with, that kind of thing. This reliquary contains things with a different kind of meaning. Found items from around my home that I personally associate with ... well I think I'll keep that private. It only needs to be said that this doll represents someone or something to me. What it means to you (if anything) is up to you.
