Three Wise Men by Dell Jones, Texas Association of Doll Artists

These wonderful dolls pay tribute to the biblical story and Christian tradition of the wise men from the East, who followed a star to Bethlehem to worship the baby Jesus.  When they saw the child with Mary his mother, they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

The artist, Dell Jones says, "I have always been artistic and have tried every fabric-inspired project that came along. The world of needle sculpted fabric Art Dolls meets all of my artistic needs. My dolls are created using high quality exotic fabrics and trims, with additional crystals and embellishments. Most of my dolls are for myself, gifts and for display and competition at the International Quilt Festival."
