    **What are "socks poppetjes for prayer"?**
    "Socks poppetjes" are stuffed dolls made of socks. Such dolls are very popular in Taiwan. Therefore I conceived of a series of such dolls of rather weird modelings. Also I made them for a specific use - prayer. All these socks poppetjes are made into pairs and all of them wear a cross. The cross is actually an earring, which can be easily taken off or changed to whatever you like. All these dolls are made in Fata'an, an eastern Taiwan aboriginal village the most residents of which are Christians. They also bear a simple hand-written tag. On the one side it marks "made in Fata'an" and on the other "sapitolon," which means, in the local Austronesian language "to be used for prayer."

    The socks poppetjes you see here are named ANTENNA. One of them has very long ones and big eyes and another very short antenna and very small eyes.

    The long-antenna one is very small (the body itself is only 9cm long while the antenna 17cm long) and the short-antenna one is slim and tall (the body is 21cm long, antenna 4cm).

    This pair is special among all others for the crosses they wear are Catholic ones, meaning that there's Jesus' image on the cross, decorated with pink Russian diamonds.

    In principle I do not like to tear a couple apart and wish to sell them as a pair. But if you really want to purchase only one of them, you can contact me for the possibility. The long-antenna one is quite a nice toy for children or it can be a cute hanging decoration (I can make it into a hangable one, if you so request).
