Moses and Miriam

This doll is a reversible story doll. On one side is Moses with the two tablets of the Ten Commandments, and when you flip it over, there is the Miriam with the child Moses in a basket to be put in the river nile. With this doll you tell the story of Moses and his elder sister Miriam and how they eventually led the Jewish people out of Egypt to the promised land. This doll is entirely handmade from fabric. Notice that the faces and hands are not molded from plastic or rubber. Rather they were meticulously sculpted using fabric and thread.

Moses and Miriam

And when she could hide him no longer she took for him a basket made of bulrushes, and daubed it with bitumen and pitch; and she put the child in it and placed it among the reeds at the river's brink. And his sister stood at a distance, to know what would be done to him. Now the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, and her maidens walked beside the river; she saw the basket among the reeds and sent her maid to fetch it. When she opened it she saw the child; and lo, the babe was crying. She took pity on him and said, "This is one of the Hebrews' children. ..." And the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son; and she named him Moses, for she said, "Because I drew him out of the water." (Exodus 2:3-6,10 RSV)
