wooden dolls by alexander girard
Inspired by the cultures of South America, Asia and Eastern Europe, Alexander Girard originally created this set of dolls for himself. Faithfully reproduced by Vitra using Girard's drawings, these dolls are now available to give and collect. They remind me of my favorite ride at DisneyLand: "It's A Small World" . . . and the hope for harmony that the Olympic Games has tried to ignite within our world. Sappy? Maybe. But, that's me, hoping for world peace and an awesome finish to the XXIX Olympiad . . .
