Macro 3.6.5. Challenge

Doll Face

Dolls have been around since the dawn of civilization.  Archaeologists place dolls as one of the oldest toys, having been found in Egyptian tombs as early as 2000 BC. In Egypt, as well as Greece and Rome, it was common to find them in the graves of children.

While dolls have traditionally been toys for female children, they are also collected by adults, for their nostalgic value, beauty, historical importance or financial value, and have been fashioned from a vast array of materials ranging from stone, clay, wood, bone, cloth and paper, to porcelain, china, rubber and plastic.
