Strange craft conversations

My mum's given me some doll and toy making books to look after while she moves house. One of then has become a major part of my inner craft life (where I dream about making). It's from 1983 & it's Japanese but in english. The instructions are amazing; beautiful & detailed. But some of the illustrations I find a little disturbing...

Mum & I had a conversation about this one. I asked, so are these babies that have died & gone to heaven?  Mum thinks they could be, as afterall it looks like heaven. We ponder the concept of making such a doll. Then we read the title, der. They're in the land of unborn babies, waiting to be born? Of course.
