Feelin' morbid anybody?

"These odd dolls are not something you will find in a toy store. [...] Weird, misshapen and tortured, these unusual handmade dolls are...definitely not for children, unless you want them to have nightmares."

I just happened to stumble upon this website. It was such an aggressive, violent image that it was impossible not to pass unnoticed. And I still don't know exactly if that's good or bad.

The strong reaction derives from not answering the horizon of expectation in respect to what a doll represents. Instead of innocent, you've got rotten, instead of cute, you've got horrid, instead of happy, you've got morbid.
