She’s smiling because she’s blissfully in love. This doll face was designed to be the archtype of the lover.
When I started digitizing doll faces for my embroidery machine back in 2015, I set out to create 12 faces to embody 12 archetypes based on the psychology of Carl Jung. But I only finished 8 faces.
Now I want to finish the set of 12, and update them with more archetypes. This year I’ve been reading books by Carol Pearson and her descriptions of the archtypes have helped me with my own personal growth. It’s fascinating to see how our own lives can parallel the hero’s journey. What story will you write for yourself?
