Kathie_Olivas-Two_Faced_Hazel

Two-Faced Hazel is a 9″ vinyl doll by artist Kathie Olivas. She (the doll) has four striped legs, an amorphous dress, and a gas mask for a second face. Not quite cute, not quite scary, Hazel just hangs out, compelling you to pick her up, turn her around, set her down. Then stare at her for a while before turning her again.
