Mamma Mia! I Won First Place!

Here is “La Befana,” my entry in the Italian Dream Challenge. The challenge was to create a doll in the shape of the map of Italy and include the islands of Sicily and Sardinia.

According to tradition, La Befana is known as the ageless wanderer, the old woman who flies through the night every January 6th (Epiphany) on her broomstick to fill the stockings of good boys and girls with candy and presents. I used the island of Sicily as her toy sack and the island of Sardinia as her little cat and traveling companion.
