Witchcraft Folk Art Poppet Caricature Charm Figure Voodoo Doll Grotesque Weird

Ugly Offensive Pin Doll Poppet for charity auction

Witchcraft Folk Art Poppet Caricature Charm Figure 
Voodoo Doll Grotesque Weird Effigy

This morning (Sunday 21st Jan), in solidarity with the #WomensMarch2018 (I'm a bloke), I have decided to donate the sum total auction price this item realizes on ebay to a homeless charity. St Petrocs Society in Cornwall (UK).  Women are victims of homelessness too!

This item - Dirt cheap! We actually mean the auction start price! 

A 'come buy me' low bid price.  Truth is, we just want rid of this ugly offensive little manikin - we mean the doll.

Utterly garish, gross, tatty, nasty, tasteless, poor quality, & many would consider kitsch tat!

...No, seriously, we do mean the doll, despite that some people think it looks a little like some bloke called Trump!

Now to be clear this folk art is a based upon a traditional pin doll, not a covert Russian Doll.

Some might consider & think this to be a representational doll of a borderline Neo-Nazi Blond Right Wing Bigoted US Republican Trans-phobic Homophobic Racist Misogynist

We could not possibly say that, but.... 

What it is ...'& this is not fake news', it is 'Crap Art', that is to say - a term used to describe an item made from recycled rubbish (To be absolutely clear, the doll, we do mean the doll).

NB; This doll is not stuffed with recycled Mc Donalds fast food wrappers - too greasy!

This is a contemporary folk art take on a traditional Witchcraft Poppet Doll.  It was never intended or made to last, but to be destroyed by burning, burying, decomposition, or drowned by being weighed down in water, stuck with pins...or torn apart by dogs (NB: Not advisable, as we would not want any dog to choke on it).  

There are said to be various traditional means of using a witchcraft poppet doll. Research would indicate this could be used for what is termed 'Go away' magic. This folk art take on a charm intended to deter, reflect or repel (well its not a bigger red button is it?).  We only created this Folk Art poppet doll, for something to burn &/or stick with pins/blackthorn spikes, had a certain particular 'visit' to the UK gone ahead this February

The scheduled February visit to UK has now been reported in the media as cancelled, (Hurrah!!  But quite strange, because we quite like the design of the new USA embassy building in London).  

So we don't need this unpleasant objectionable little puffed up obnoxious effigy representation of male misogyny any longer. (we do mean the doll).   Besides, we can always make another if we must, for any further impending state visit to the UK.

However, there may be someone who will like, or even love this really rubbish rough bit of tasteless tatty crap....(How many times? We do mean the doll) even if it is to just stick pins in &/or burn it.....or you might even build a wall around it?

Can you tell, really going for the 'hard sell' on the nasty crap quality of this item?
At 99p start. Its worth bidding on - just for a laugh!
