This is an acrylic painting, with collage, of Amish Dolls. I am from Pennsylvania, very close to Lancaster where there is a large population of Amish. I am a little familiar with their culture, like the faceless dolls. It never occurred to me that the Art Directors from New York City did not know what they were. The critique of this illustration was – the bunny is great, very personable, but those dolls are disconcerting.
After I explained what they were, they thought there could be a story there – be still – the dolls were creeping them out!
Exodus 20:4 ESV
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
