Beau was made in the traditional ‘Deep South’ way – with as much fabric as was available. Many creators of dolls throughout the centuries have struggled with making something recognisable as a poppet but with limited resources. Beau has no arms but is still distinguishable as a poppet doll and is, nonetheless, huggable. He smells of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg and brings comfort as a result. He allowed me to open up the pouch around his neck and I photographed the content. I don’t think there is anything harmful in it. In fact I think some former owner made it for Beau and filled it with treasures that resonated with them to celebrate their relationship. I do not recognise the symbols inscribed on the pouch. 
The photos of Beau do not do justice to him as he looks darker in general and has beautiful markings on him. 

Handmade doll. Cotton body, linen pouch with contents: rose petals, acorn, shells, non-functioning Indian bell, quartz, real ancient roman beads, real ancient Egyptian glass, sea china, cassia bark and all spice berry.
