I visited the Museum of Iranian Dolls and Culture twice.
Here beautifully adorned life size dolls are dressed in the local tradition dress of each city of Iran. Women are invited from these parts to hand make these items of clothing. They also make dolls of that locality. A story is gathered from each location to will these beautiful dolls into being for any visitor that comes to visit. I was absolutely stunned by the beauty and detail of these.

Some examples..

I was particularly struck by how at home I felt with these dolls and dresses. Some of my won work sprung to mind.

And some of the dolls reminded me of my own.
