Dolls, dolls, and more dolls

Dolls and the meaning behind them is complex.  Now when I was caught up in my Kundalini Awakening in 2013 I was in an art class. I was worked up about World War II and  I started a project about Klaus Barbie and the Barbie doll.  Supposedly the inventor of the Mattel Barbie doll went to Germany after WWII.  The German people are notorious for their lovely dolls and stuffed toys.  I have a large collection of Steiff animals.  I also was given a Kate Kruse doll for my fourth birthday.  The inventer of Barbie dolls had a daughter named Barbara.  Sadly the USA Mattel Barbie is all sexed up.  This is not in keeping with the German tradition, as I know it.

I got it into my head in 2013, that the Barbie doll was really named after Klaus Barbie.  The Nazi people were big on the occult.  The inventor of  Barbie was of German descent. The use of a name and its vibration might have been a goal to spread his spirit (he did not die until he was 77).  Somehow the spirit of Klaus would be called upon and influence little girls.  The Nazi philosophy towards women was not feminist.  Women were considered sex objects, like the Barbie doll depicts.  I searched for the initial sketch that I did prior to withdrawing but cannot locate.  (I did get my degree).

My Kate Kruse Ingalill. December '64.

This is somewhat suggestive of us girls being dolls, including my mother.

 I got a "Skipper" doll for Christmas.

The dolls I make are spirit poppets.  Like I have said before, I am not a wicked doll maker.  The worst I have done is give them the 5 wounds of Christ.  (which, btw is a lesson, not a punishment)  Dolls have been part of my psyche for nearly my entire life, so being a doll maker comes naturally for me.

A doll can make a person into an object(person disempowered), but an object can also be made into a person (spirit poppet-person empowered object).  This is King Arthur below, a mythological once and future king. He is empowered by being a doll in my world.
