polly van der glas

in addition to having an awesome name, polly brings a hefty amount of quirk to arbor's collection. namely, an obsession with hair and teethe. very obscure indeed. in her words, 'these materials were once part of an intimate, elaborate maintenance ritual. hair and teethe were brushed, treated with colours and bleaches... when attached to the body they are central to social values of beauty yet when they become detached the meanings they hold drastically transform'. some food for thought, and her bits and pieces are pretty pretty too.
