Metal Bookend Motanka Ukrainian Doll
We based this folk themed design on Ukrainian tradition of dolls Motanka. These dolls are traditional amulet dolls made in Ukraine without any use of the needle. We tried to pay tribute to it in metal. It traditionally didn't have any facial features. Makers often would use a cross instead.
Motanka dolls were made with specific purpose for them to grant good wishes such as guarding the family or a prosperous marriage.
Today with russian invasion of Ukraine we made the bookend based on motanka to say we are praying for our country.
