Introducing the Peace Hero Dolls

The meeting of great minds...all lined up on my couch. JFK , a Monk, Gandhi and Jesus. Could you just imagine the conversations!
Each doll is handpainted acrylic on canvas, then sewn to vintage 60's material on the backs,,,,JFK has a canvas back and quote on him.
They stand about 10 " tall and are about 5" wide. Stuffed with recycled cloth.
The Monk has vintage sheet music on his front...with words like LOVE and Be True on him.
Two are listed on Etsy now,,,,the other two will be later today.
I started these "Peace Hero" dolls after seeing military men all in black called the 'peacekeepers' being sold to children . They had guns in their hands ...what kind of peace is that? It's not the kind of peace I want my son to grow up in. I want him to look up to those that advocate peace in a non-violent way.
