Welcome to the whimsical world of Gordon Johnson and his mechanical dolls.

Gordon Johnson, schoolteacher, model-maker and artist, from county Fermanagh, has created an exhibition of life-size dolls made almost entirely from scrap, abandoned sewing machines and discarded prams.

The project began life as a series of cartoons and then grew into a full-scale exhibition which is now on display at the Visitors' Centre in Enniskillen, county Fermanagh.
