The Fort East Martello Museum, in the US state of Florida, for the first time, imprisoned a doll inside a glass box, warning visitors to protect them from its curses, especially if someone touched it or looked at it with disgust, and this step comes in light of the belief of many Americans that this doll carries curses and causes disgust. in the occurrence of disasters.
