Paper sin dolls are part of a series of works ‘Bad beasts wont harm me’ this body of work aims to research the space in between an object transcending from the physical to the magical. A lump of meteorite worn against gunfire is an amulet a bullet-proof vest it is not.

Always be careful with fire.
