OK her is the story all about the doll..
It is prolly abot 7 inchs tall and made from sculpy
Now a little about all of the symbols on it...
The head...I did in a Mexican day of the dead style
The torso..one side has red candles, flowers, and skulls This is a must for any voodoo alter
The other side is a fish skelaton..goes back to the bones you need for alters and also in most any gris gris (pronounced gree gree) you will have small bones from either a fish or a chicken
Ok one arm has a black cat and the number 13 (those speak for themselves) and it also has 3 red Xs on it
in voodoo the 3 red Xs are a symbol for both man and woman and life. Most all gris gris and voodoo type spells start with the 3 Xs on a peice of parchment paper.
In Saint Lewis Cemetary #1 in the French Quater the famous voodoo prestess Marie Laveau is buried inone of the above ground crypts. To this day people still come and place alters in front of her crypt and mark 3 red Xs on the side of the crypt in prayer and for blessings.
On the other arm are paisleys...often in rituals most people wear all white dress but will wear a sash or head band that is bright colors or bright print. This is to guies the good spirits into certain parts of the body. If a good spirirt was to enter your body it is considered rude to let it enter into you through any other way than your head, heart or stomach.
Next...on one leg..is a snake...in voodoo culture the snake is considered to hold the spirits of past voodoo preist and preistess. On the same leg is a triangle and the "all seeing eye" . The triangle represents the 3 parts of time Past, present and future and the "all seeing eye" that sees it all and knows all.
The eye is sometimes painted on the palm of some ones hand before a ritual so that they can see into the future orif a ritual is done "to" a person the preist or preist paints on on his/her hand so that they can see the problems the person recieving the ritual is having.
On the other leg is a tree of life (often represented by a willow) and one leaf to represent all we are in the grand sceam of life.
And There is also a hand and a square inside a circle.
The hand represents where most of your power is held when in use. And the square int he circle is one of the symbols often drawn on the floor in a room where a ritual will be held.
Whew! that is alot...And I may have gotten some of it out of order as to where it is on the doll...but you getthe idea.
I have several friend who live in New Orleans and one who runs a vampire/ghost/cemetary/voodoo tour. They helped alot with the symbols and what they mean.
I made sure not to put anything on the doll that was bad
