range from $28 to $800 depending on the
size and material.
Dolls come in all shapes and sizes.
The heads, hands and feet are made of
papier-mache and the soft bodies are
stuffed with polyester.
ONE DOLL came equipped with a
stuffedsilver fish. She was clad in white
silk and her dress was covered with the
words: "Circumstantial evidence is
very strong - as when you find a
trout in the milk. - Thoreau."
Khanna's last customer shelled out
$800 for the profound doll after which
Khanna quietly dismantled her booth
and turned over the street space to
another South University artist.
While some customers described
Khanna's works as "cute" and
"adorable" the artist says critics have
called her dolls "haunting" and "other-
worldly."
"I STRIVE for ambiguity in my
work, especially in their faces," she
says. Khanna explained that from a
distance a doll appears to be smiling, a
little closer the face seems to look
serious, and holding the doll close up it
was clear the creation was in pain.
"My customers will find after they
get home that the dolls look different

each time they look at them," Khanna
says.
Despite Khanna's intimate work
creating the dolls, she says she feels no
attachment to them.
"THEY'RE NOT people to me," she
says. "Customers will tell me they have
named their dolls, but they're only ob-
jects to me."
There was one doll left when the ar-
tist packed up her booth which Khanna
says is reserved for a friend.
"After (the dolls have) been in the
fair, I kind of feel that they belong to the
fair," she says, adding that she does not
even own one of her dolls.
Khanna, an Ann Arbor resident,
exhibits exclusively at the summer art
fair. She has never worked at any of the
bigger fairs on the east coast which at-
tract many city art galleries -
although she says if she went they
would "eat her work up."
But Khanna displays her work at
local museums such as the Peaceable
Kingdom on East Liberty and the Hill
Gallery in Birmingham. Many of
Khanna's "fans" who lined up early
this morning had seen her work from
these galleries, but other patrons
remembers her work from prevous art
fairs, she says.

TODAY
High-flying cows
IF YOU THOUGHT you saw some cows acting strangly in Ypsilanti lately,
you might not have been dreaming. An elderly Ypsilanti farmer facing
drug charges said he fed marijuana to his five cows to give them "the mun-
chies" and make them lay down, police said. Clinton Farr was arrested by
two state troopers as he was harvesting pot from a field behind his house,
police said. According to police records, Farr said he mixed marijuana in
the cows' feed since he once read that it will make them either lay down after
eating or make them get the munchies and eat more, "making them more
beautiful." Police confiscated 1,150 plants between 2 and 4 feet high, along
with two 6-gallon containers and five grocery bags full of dried and
processed marijuana, Sgt. Greg Ahoe said. Farr is scheduled to appear in
Circuit Court Aug. 2 on charges of growing marijuana with intent to deliver.
If he is convicted, he faces a maximum four-year prison term and a $2,000 fine.
