THE TWO ARE ONE


I finished the Amish husband last night. They look cute to me.
Someone has asked about the faces on them.....When I make a Amish Doll I do not put a face on them. But this is a bear...there really is no likeness to a real person. They do not want a picture of themselves. That to them is wrong...no "graven images" is how they look at it.
Here is a very good book to read about the Amish..
Donald Kraybill is family and is an expert on Amish. You can read a excerpt from this book here:
I am now working on a Victorian Bear.....
