    These were mentioned a few times in the DR1 news, 12’ Faceless Dolls that were on display in the Colinial Zone.

    In case you missed them, here’s a photo

    What do you find creepy? No faces? That’s intentional, meant to convey that there is no one Dominican “look”, faces and features vary dramatically, yet they are all one.

    I always liked the dolls, so many always had heads broken or arms in transport. I am much better about getting them home now. In La Romana there is a store that has one in Terra Cotta like 8ft tall!

    I first encountered these figurines in Las Terrenas. Each one was unique. Found both pottery and cloth
    dolls. Here's a little blurb on the history. https://casadecampoliving.com/munecas-lime/.
