Bone Medicine Doll


Out of stock


This piece was hand made from bone in China. The darker parts are created by etching into the bone and then rubbing coloring into the cracks.

Medicine dolls, also known as ‘doctor’s ladies’ were commonly used in China when women were at the doctor’s office. Woman would use a stick to point to their problem areas on the doll so as to keep their modesty in front of the male doctors.
