Mana’s: Painted dolls or ‘Mana’s’ have their history and like the paintings are based on religious symbols and icons. Mana has a deep meaning in many cultures, the dolls can be a personification, perhaps, of mana? They are what the recipient wants them to be. They are created for good, and can only be made when the arist is ‘in a good place’. Based around ancient feminine imagery from the earliest times ie Venus of Willendorf, Cycladic figures etc.
