Hitty Perdita

Perdita in the garden


This doll was carved by doll artist Gustavo Trullet who lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is made of a Palo Santo wood which is very dense and heavy, a dark green colour and has a heavenly scent. She came to live with us in 2010, and I named her Perdita, which means “lost little girl”.  My son asked whether she was given this name because she is a “purdy little thing”, or because the story Hitty kept getting lost all the time.  Both are true, but actually, I just liked the name.
