Open Range Art Dolls

My sister and I spent part of this evening at a Spanish Peaks Arts Council reception, where I will have my nail mosaic buffalo on display through the rest of the month.  There was a nice turnout, and we got to meet lots of friendly and gifted people to gab with for the evening.

One of the artists whose ear I bent for a long time (poor thing) makes these incredible dolls from locally-found natural materials, plus added pieces of fabrics & whatnot.  I just have to love the face on this particular one.  Can you identify what makes up the face?  It’s a sun-bleached vertebra from a long-deceased cow or steer.  And check out the arms…. these are rib bones.  All in all, I was just flabbergasted at the creativity of her work, and snagged a printed post card she had on hand to scan for this post.

Mary Jane Butler of Open Range Art Dolls really knocked my socks off with her work.
