Iowa Corn Husks Dolls Sitting on Bench with Balls of Yarn (Profile View)

Woman and girl dolls that are handcrafted from corn husks that have been soaked in warm water. The husks are then formed into the body, arms, head, dress and scarf. The woman has a blue corn husk in the front of her dress, and the girl's dress is dyed pink. They are both sitting on a wood bench with a ball of yarn. Other colored yarn balls are in a basket between them. Their hair is made from fibers. The figure stands 6 inches (16 cm) tall.
