Hello,
Is it okay to give my modern orthodox mentor a bobblehead doll of Rabbi Akiva as a gift to put on his desk at work?
Thanks,

Answer:

Yes, this would be permitted. Dolls and figurines which are never used for Avoda Zara are not included in the prohibition of owning and keeping a human form figurine.
