Dolls, as well as puppets, are mentioned in the Carcosa Mythos. They play a leading roll in The Death of Art and the poem in that novel. "A pair of dolls in identical dresses" are mentioned in the poem Dollhouse in the Yellow Dresses sequence. Dolls are amongst the elements that serve to give The Clue In The Old Album a peculiarly mythos-like feel. See also Clairan and Crespian.
