What makes a collectible doll a work of art? Is it the uniqueness of a one-of-a-kind figure? Is it the expression of character or emotion in the doll's face? Is it the doll's uncanny resemblance to a well-known person? Is it the exquisite detail in the sculpted face and hand-stitched clothing? Or is it all these features that elevates a hand-crafted toy form to high art?
