When Doll Are More Than Play Things, They're "Art Dolls"

Art Dolls, a group on Flickr.

There is a whole Flickr group dedicated to art dolls. And what is an art doll? Well, it's not necessarily a toy. You might not be able to play with it. You look at it for it's beauty and the story it illustrates all by itself.

My favorite contributors to this group are, Sweet Bestiary, an Argentinean artist who lives in London and creates the most amazing creatures from air drying clay, and Shain Erin who creates sort of cute zombie like dolls which simultaneously repulse you and make you want to take them home. Check out the many variations on dolls by clicking on the link above.
