About NIADA dolls:

"NIADA dolls are not copies of an old doll (although an artist may choose to caricature, spoof or make a social commentary on such a doll). It is not a conglomeration of limbs made from molds made by other artists; it is not a beautiful head placed on a stump of a body. It is a complete entity. It conveys a message, usually some facet of culture, which mirrors life and can be a record for future generations. NIADA dolls also depict the past, capture the present and, in many instances, interprets the artist's own version of [other] influences. Each artist has an individual style."
