As an ethnograper and folkore lover I definitely have a soft spot for dolls in
traditional / regional / ethnic editions.
This one is a Polish Barbie Doll. She is wearing costume from region of Cracow /which happens to be a national one/ - the city where I come from :-)
She has classic Barbie face and smile but I am really enjoying
her pale carnation and bloody red lips... She also has a very simple make-up for her era.
