Extremely Primitive American Sheep Door Doll
Kentucky Primitives folk artist
Simple Primitives done in the tradition of old
This is an extremely primitive sheep door doll.
He hangs by stained twine. He is long and slender. He is painted a grungy antique white. An old rusty nail holds on a grungy cotton batting tail.
The flag banner is separate and old looking, and secured to him by
rusty nails on each side. An aged paper tag has been sewn to
the center of it which says "American Wool & Co. Est 1776"
Dried moss and sweet annie surround the flag banner, and rusty
bells have been sewn to the tips. The old sheep wears a twine collar with a rusty bell hanging down. His old feet and legs are made from dried sticks and tree branches. He measures approximately 28".
