A voodoo doll is a small doll or figurine that is invested with magical energy, usually in the form of a curse. It is utilized by practitioners of the voodoo religion and is fashioned in the likeness of a specific living individual. Sometimes a physical element of the individual will be used in construction of the doll, such as a strip of fabric from a piece of clothing, or even a lock of hair. Once the spell has been cast binding the doll to the selected individual, the maker of the doll can then inflict pain, and even death, upon the person by visiting physical stimuli upon the doll. For instance, stabbing a voodoo doll in the head with a pin, may cause intense trauma for the person for whom the doll is assigned to. Excessive damage, or the complete destruction of the doll, usually causes the person to die.
