Motanky, traditional handmade Ukrainian cloth dolls, have held a place in children’s hearts, as well as serving as oberehy (good luck charms) for the home since pagan times. For the face, there are only crossed threads. This ensures that the doll is impartial, and will not cause mischief! The mother and child doll is typically given to mothers to be. Other dolls are toys or protectresses. 9.5” high. Made lovingly in Ukraine from the studio of O. Orekhova.
