Doll in history
In the last century, no fair did not do without a folk toy, without colorful clay and wooden women, bears, deers, horsemen, birds. Beautiful and bright – right from the tray, they fell into the hands of children who immediately began to play, including new characters in their children’s fairy tale world.
Even then, few people remembered that the toy in its original form – a ritual and ritual sculpture, an instrument of magic. It is associated with the worship of a female deity, a cult of fertility, ancestors, a home hearth.
There were aesthetic, religious and magical beginnings in it. It has always been taken into account by the ancient folk artist. Gradually, the magic role of the toy was forgotten, and the doll became a simple children’s toy, which performs only the game function.
Even in the poorest peasant families, a traditional toy, from ancient times, was a rag doll. Sometimes in some houses they accumulated dozens of pieces. Dolls were played not only by girls but also by boys up to 7 years old. While the children were small, they were wrapped in dolls by their mother, grandmother, older sisters. From five, such a toy could already be done by any girl. At first, the girls tried to make the simplest representation of the female figure. It was a rolled piece of fabric for the body, carefully covered with linen cloth, a breast of equal, tight filled balls, a hair braid with a woven tape in it and an outfit of bright bits. When the girls became older, they sewed the dolls more complex. The faces were embroidered or pencil pointed, and in earlier dolls – a charcoal. If the “newlyweds” were busy, they necessarily tied the braid with a ribbon, and if the woman was wearing a “handkerchief”. The abilities of the child were evaluated by adults. The doll was considered as a standard of needlework, often accompanied by a spinning wheel, teenage girls took a doll with dolls. They were judged by the skill and taste of their owners.
In puppet games, children were involuntarily learned to sew, embroider, strap, and comprehend the traditional art of dressing.
The toys were never left in the street, they were not scattered around the house, but kept in baskets, boxes. They were taken to the harvest and for holidays. the dolls were allowed to take a guest, put them in a dowry. Then these dolls passed to the children.
In the village doll preferred women’s image, even in children’s games, if the doll-groom or peasant needed, took just a pinch. On the territory of Ukraine, the toys always have a certain meaning. She was endowed with a magical power of fertility. That is why the doll in our time remains a wedding attribute.
