Description

The "Faceless Dolls" are a unique handcrafted doll originally from the Dominican Republic. They're faceless because the Dominican people represent a variety of racial and ethnic groups with the mixture of the native Taino, Spanish, French, and African. It would be impossible to create a doll with a face representing all Dominican women as no one knows for sure what one would look like as the population is so mixed. The dolls are "faceless" as a symbol of an all-inclusive culture and to remind everyone that differences in color and appearance are meaningless.
The dolls are made up with a range of skin colors, from white to brown to black. The dolls are also dressed in traditional outfits, holding baskets, flowers, or carrying items on her head.
In the Dominican Republic these dolls are sold as souvenirs and are made up in ceramic or a colorful clay.

This T-shirt is my way of recognizing an important message the "Faceless" dolls send in acknowledging and embracing all the differences the human race is made up from.
