NAHUAL: A doll inspired by a shape-shifting sorceress

So happy to be showing in a gallery again!

2020 has been a roller coaster with ups and downs all over the place. I’ve been keeping myself busy with ceramics, painting and dolls but I missed seeing some of my work in galleries. I don’t show much, but it makes me very happy when I am invited to participate on an exhibit.

DOLLMAKERS VII: FOLK TALES

Cactus Gallery in LA kindly invited me to participate on one of their doll making exhibits, and this time the theme will be Folk Tales. I got super excited when I got the invitation and quickly started thinking on a doll for them.

I chose the Mexican folk tale of the Nahual, a shape shifter that is revered by some and feared by others. The folk tale says that a human can have the power to shape shift into their spirit animal and roam the forests and plains at night.

A Nahual takes the shape of their spirit animal, but also that spirit animal takes the shape of the strengths and skills of the person. So, if your nahual form is a bird, is because you have a beautiful voice, or maybe, like her case, she is a Mexican Wolf because she is strong, independent and will take orders from no one.

In Mexican culture, a Nahual is usually a man that commands respect, but I wanted to give this doll the power of femininity along with her shape shifting powers, so I turned the concept around and I created my own version of the nahual. A powerful woman who is free to do and go as she pleases, defying preconceptions of what a woman should be or do and imbued with the power of the Wolf, a rare sight in our forest, but a very powerful one indeed.
