La Isla de las Munecas
2007

As a disturbing testament to both the spirit of a young girl and the commitment of a god fearing man, a morbid yet beautiful monument of literally thousands of dolls in various states of decay and infestation remain are found on La isla de las Munecas.
Legend states that many years ago a peasant farmer named Don Julian Santana sought to appease the spirit of a young girl that tragically drowned in the dark waters of a nearby canal by presenting the spirit with an offering... a child's doll. The appeasement worked, however the spirits appetite for dolls grew and Julian became forced to scour the countryside for more and more offerings. He became obsessed with the collection of the figures, dedicating all of his limited resources to growing the bizarre collection until his death.
