Esmeralda....a Love goddess with an attitude

This is Esmeralda.....she is almost finished and ready to go on ETSY.

Esmeralda is a Peruvian love goddess whose traditional color is emerald green. According to legend, if your lover is unfaithful, any emeralds he has given you will lose their color!

She stands with her hand on her hip, a shawl tied around her hips, a right hand full of love charms and a dancing shoe! (with the shawl this way, she is showing her gypsy soul!)

Now she is lifting her show off her ankles and fishnet stockings!

Danu--Celtic river goddess art doll

This is the doll for the art doll swap for May......
Celtic goddess doll.

Standing, in the swirling mists from the waters, she pours the rivers of the world as they bubble up from her basin.

Her cloak is evocative of leather and of straw or she is also the goddess of agriculture and cattle.

[She is about 10 inches tall, and weighted to stand on her own.]

It all started with the Victorian child sticker from the package....I'm working on 2 full pages,using a lot of the magazine art I cropped a couple of weeks ago. This one is all about apricot and dark red and garden or Mother's Day...there is also the loosly tied in on the spiral wire, manila tag made by Robyn, "thank-you"....showing upside down in the scan!
