Female doll with a white cotton scarf on her head and long red synthetic hair in braids. The face and hands of the doll are made from an orange colored wool felt. Underneath the clothing, the body is covered with white felt. She is holding a red and white striped hoop over her head made from wire covered with a strips of felt. She is wearing the costume for the "Ustai" (girl's hoop dance). She is wearing a long-sleeved, collared white blouse, a black felt vest with red thread lacing, a red felt skirt with a black stripe, and a black cotton apron. Her legs are covered in white felt (as socks or leggings) with leather abarkak (leather shoes with laces that go up the calf, in this case made with red thread). Her white petticoat with pantaloons are edged with lace. Her facial features, eyebrows, eyes with pupils, and a red mouth, are hand stitched. There is a red string attached in a loop at the top of the head scarf, indicating the possibility that this was an ornament for a Christmas tree. The doll is not flexible, but has a distinct armature that holds the arms and legs in a specific pose.
