Abstract

This doll is dressed as a nun, a woman in the Catholic faith that decided to make vows of poverty and service. While she is wearing a habit, like the other nun doll in this exhibit, she also has a rosary around her waist. A rosary is a special way of praying and meditation in the Catholic Church, where the person who prays the rosary asks for the intercession, or prayers, of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
