I'm willing to present my new doll, which I worked on for the last few months. The idea of her creation I nurtured for two years.
In the beginning, I had to choose whether to do a portrait doll, or to create an image. I chose the second option, in my understanding the doll first of all, must be a doll and it must reflect the understanding and vision of the author.
I was looking for inspiration in the works, photographs and biography of talented, strong and not ordinary person, Frida Kahlo. Many, many times I reviewed a film about the life of a wonderful artist. I think my work shows some of the face features of the actress Salma Hayek, who played a terrific role in the eponymous film "Frida."
I am very pleased how turned out this doll. My doll Frida, is my perception and rethinking of images and feelings that I experienced during her creation.
Frida is OOAK, made of porcelain, 45cm tall, painted by ChinaPaints. Skirt, top and stole, hand-painted in technique of cold batik. Special attention deserves the skirt, it depicts motifs from the paintings of Frida Kahlo. The petticoat made from vintage lace. Bracelets and shoes are made of silver and gold plated. Wigs are made of natural mohair.
Spring are strums, it is normal.
Because of the springs, never twist the joints!!!
VividDolls are porcelain author's works, not for constant play.
