Nisha ©Genya original Gullah Bottle Doll

Nisha is at the gallery now with several “sista’s.”Nisha

Crafted by ©Genya specifically for Samantha Claar’s Gullah Living.

They are completely hand made with attention to detail. Their clothing honors their West African heritage and the dolls pay homage to the indomitable spirit that slave women forged in building colonial America. Whether cooking, cleaning, nursing, working in fields or among their own,  their fierce determination and knowledge of how to accomplish the impossible makes them the ultimate role models.  Beautiful dolls representing a beautiful people.
