Needle felted Gold Meir puppet is handmade in Israel and made of wool; she is holding her signature cigarette. This puppet is a portrait of a strong woman and an Israeli icon; she was the fourth Prime Minister of Israel and one of its founders. This wool sculpture is an art object, it’s not meant to be a toy. The Golda puppet is wool sculpture, a conversation piece and a piece of Jewish art.

The puppet is : 20″ tall x 13″ wide

*Needle felting is meshing raw wool together with a specially barbed needle by repeatedly stabbing the wool with the needle. The wool binds together to create very strong forms.
These handmade sculptures are not toys and not recommended for small children. It is recommended that they are kept behind glass to avoid dust.


I am an American textile Artist living in the Middle East. I’m from Greenfield, Indiana and I live in Jaffa, Israel; My family and I, our four cats, two turtles, and our Bull Terrier Louie live a multi-cultural life. Ever since I can remember I’ve been making things! I’m inspired by my three girls and a love for art, animals, gardening, travel and photography. I use the textile technique of needle felting to create animals, dolls, masks and puppets. I started sewing costumes and making toys for my girls when they were little; after we moved to Israel I started a business and wrote two books based on making beautiful things for children. Today my artistic focus has changed to making art for adults who are in touch with their inner child! I have also been painting portraits and still lifes and accept commissions.
