herzensart dolls and art

look at these handmade works crafted by german artist sandra monat. sandra’s portfolio is filled with witty and wonderfully detailed creations, made primarily of felt and cotton. it’s clear that everything here is made with the special ingredient (love, or do i even need to mention it?).

sandra aptly calls her dolls art toys, since admiring and collecting them isn’t exclusive to kids. her talents aren’t limited to vikings either – look too at her collections of embroidered dream guardians and birds, gently placed in quietly powerful scenes:

lots and lots of good energy flowing here.

view her portfolio on her website and be sure to see her blog too!
