the magic doll


In a small village in West Africa, a young girl explains the special way she was born – Her mother had difficulty getting pregnant, so she seeks help in the form of a doll which she treats like a human baby, carrying it on her back and covering it with kisses.

A sophisticated tale of love and longing, motherhood and magic – the artwork by Élodie Nouhen are stunning.
