One of the most often cited reasons that Amish dolls do not have faces is that the Biblical book of Deuteronomy prohibits the creation of graven images. A common story that is part of the doll making tradition is that a young Amish girl was given a doll by her teacher. When she brought it home, her father replaced the doll's head with an old sock. He told her that "only God can make people." Since then, according to tradition, all Amish children have played with rag dolls that had no faces.

FACELESS AMISH DOLLS: The Amish believe in a literal interpretation of the bible. This commandment is why their dolls historically haven't featured faces (although that has pretty much changed nowadays) and why they don't like to have their picture taken (still very much a rule) or own cameras. - See more at: http://www.almost-amish.com/products/faceless-amish-dolls#sthash.w670T8mx.dpuf
