Handmade Doll - Lil

Tá Dia láidir is máthair mhaith aige.
God is strong and He has a good mother.

Lil is inspired by the artist’s own mother. This handcrafted doll with its soft wrap-around apron reminds us of the hardworking caring mothers of Ireland that are the well from which all the creativity, community, and colour we associate with Ireland sprang.

Textile, cloth, small doll, 30cm in length. Dressed in a cotton frock or a tweed skirt. Apron in beautiful cotton granny prints.

Doll size: 30cm x 4cm x 5cm, Doll box size: 33.5cm x 6.5cm x 14.5cm, Shipping size: 38.5cm x 9.5cm x 18cm


Safety notice:
This is not a toy – Please cherish


In my work, the apron is an apt symbol, rich in meaning when viewing Ireland’s formative post-War years. The apron work in homes carries memories and associations, a symbol of nuturing and growth. A garment worn by spirited women who shaped our cultural identity, and mothers who played a vital role, noted for their thrift, resourcefulness, creativity, energy, and enterprise.
