Title: The Amusing Game of Innocence Abroad
Dimensions: 1m high each doll
Description: The game was published in 1889 and takes its title from Mark Twain's humourous travelogue "The Innocents Abroad, or the New Pilgrim's Progress" (1869).
Taken from"Great Board Games", compiled by Brian Love, Ebury Press and Michael Joseph, 1979.
I often go for walks with my dogs in the green belt behind our house and was appalled to see some of the items below dumped there. On a whim I decided to see if I could utilise this litter in some manner and the result is the doll statuette.
I have created seven dolls, as seven is a number often seen to be mystical and they are arranged in a circle, as this is the symbol of eternity.
Materials: The doll statuettes were fashioned from waste material, such as 2L plastic soft drink bottles, empty toilet rolls, discarded yoghurt containers, egg boxes, papier machè and air-dried clay.
