doll (pastimes: toys)

A plastic display doll, factory made with brown/black 'hair', joined eyebrows and moveable eyelids with long lashes and infantile facial features. The doll is standing with her arms by her sides and is barefoot. She is dressed in a headscarf/turban of a transparent material decorated with gold bands and red dots; a white blouse-dress and trousers with blue and white ruffles on the sleeves and hem and a long, sleeveless surcoat with a front opening in green, yellow, red, white and purple stripey fabric, edged with mid-blue trim all around.

Tie-on label is numbered '47'.

This doll was on display in the ikat factory shop in Margilan and was purchased in passing. K. Teague's impression is that it shows strong European/Russian influence rather than Uzbek culture, as such.

The local term for the object is: 'KUKLA / KUGURUK'
