Dolls for Afghan Warriors

Afghan soldier treasures few things more than an European doll, and such a puppet will provide his comrades and himself with material for amusement, admiration, and amazement.

The soldiers are not alone in this matter, and it is on record, for instance, that many dolls had their place in the harem of the late Amir of Afghanistan. Most of the dolls that find their way from Europe to Afghanistan are of composition or of kid, wax dolls perishing too easily under the heat of an Afghan summer.
