The hand-sewn dolls by Bobbie Pires are 8-9 inches tall, stuffed with fabric and have had a real life Bush portrait sewn on to the face area and horns stitched to the head.
Pires created the dolls, which are currently on display at the Studio Gallery in San Francisco, because she is frustrated with Bush and his administration and wanted to express it in some way.
She figures folks who snatch up the hexing dolls, which range from $75 to $800 depending on size and material used, wont want to use it as an art piece, but will want to light it on fire and jam as many needles and pins into it as possible.
Still, she admits its more about suggestion.
In her words, People can finally control [Bush] instead of him controlling them.
