Faceless dolls are a tradition of the Old Order Amish. Their precise origins are unclear but they were made and used for about 300 years. The original dolls were faceless for religions reasons. The Amish, very modest, believe that all people are created equal and equal in the Eyes of God. The unembellished appearnce of the doll reflects this. Antique faceless dolls are sold for upwards of $1,000.
The process of making the dolls is considered folk art. The dolls created for you are authentic, high-quality, handmade, sewn rag dolls dressed in Amish clothing. They are 15" high and sturdy. After the doll is created, Gerta will smudge it and satuate it with Speilwerk protection and defense magick. After I receive it, I will do the same by my own tradition of magick - which is also Christian based. Therefore, the doll will be doubly charmed. The item can be played with by a child or put with your doll collection. It can be passed down for generations, and the magick is permanently locked in.
The purpose of the female doll as a magickal charm is for home protection, family protection, business & property protection, financial protection, and protection from physical harm or danger. The male doll is a defender and projects justice as well. It can be used as a shield and mirror bad behavior back to somebody after it's projected towards you or your loved ones. It can also protect you from gossip, enemies and betrayals. Instructions are included.
Please note that these dolls can only be infused with Christian Magick as Gerta, and other Pennsylvania Dutch, only practice Speilwerk/Braucherei which is deep in their heritage and ONLY and ALWAYS Christian entirely. There is no element of paganism or any other magickal tradition in Braucherei. Therefore if you request a doll, that is how it will be created for you.
