The Dolls Festival caught in a wonderful haiku. Thank you Sigrid.

I love this juxtaposition of young girls and women; the metaphor of women as dolls on the red carpet. Although, I’d rather that the girls don’t aspire for the red carpet – they are better off as normal human beings. 🙂

Oh yes, a perfect word picture. Thank you 🙂

Very nice with the dolls on a red carpet. Yes hopefully good for young girls growing to women 🙂

I see the red carpet vividly, with at least a dozen dolls waiting to be chosen!

thanks for the comment…I’d want all of them…! I just had the thought…how much like the dolls on the carpets the young girls looked at the shrine. Will have to let that thought dwell a bit and see where it leads. Thanks for the comment…and the triggered thought☺

I realize that my comment below is jumbled thoughts, but thought I’d leave it as written for you and others to decipher and interpret !
Your comment: “my two daughters, white, loved dolls with African American skin, hairstyle and outfit (they like to listen soul and blues music now, aged 40)…” has me wonder.about the “opposites attract” thought you expressed here.
My daughter, age 42, who married a man from Liberia, loves “cocca babies”…. her term… also always had a fascination with African-American skin. .but I can’t remember if she had the darker skinned dolls… will have to ask her.
Thank you for your interesting comment….which now I have triggered my daughter’s oldest, who has always loved things Japanese, and her drawings from an early age always had asian features… even portraits of Caucasian friends.
I don’t know where I’m going with my comments…but will follow thru on the rest of the links on your post… thank you for those.
