Yikes
But, they look like the dolls sold at a flower/gift shop I worked at in college. People were nuts over them and they were handmade/handpainted. I think they were a collection of storybook fairytale characters. I just can't think of the name of the company though....

Ok, I'm not sure I get what's creepy about that... It's just a satyr holding a bamboo flute. I'm quite impressed with the creator's needle felting talents! Kinda cute in a mystical creatures way....
