This 17th Century jester refined the antics of the street donkey jester. As the new fools and jesters discarded their crude attire for sophisticated and stylized costumes and moved into enclosed theater spaces, standardized characters began to develop. Sister Folly was very popular, not only was she one of the first female characters to be paid for entertainment, she was also one of the most politically astute of her fellow thespians. She made her audience squirm, but because she was so cute and so enduring she was able to get away with just about anything.

Her costume consists of a jester cap topped by two stylized velveteen ears, a double ruff and hand-dyed chanille used for her hair.

(c1983) 19"H x 9"w x 6"d
