Art Doll, GREEN PARROT Venetian Courtesan in a Window, a One of a Kind Art Doll (made entirely by hand)
One of a kind art doll, made with polymer clay over a wire armature. The figure would be equivalent of 15 inches tall if were standing. The window measures 11 inches tall by 7.5 inches wide and 3 inches deep. The figure has hand made eyes (made by the artist with polymer clay, no painting has been done on the eyes), hand dyed mohair hair, hand-sewn dress. The face, bust and hands have been painted with artist quality paints. The eyelashes are made with mohair and have been applied one hair at a time.
Fingers were built over wire on a separate armature, then soldered to the arm wires. The lower body is hidden in the styrofoam base inside the window. The doll cannon be removed from her base.
The window box is hand created with cardboard, styrofoam and layers of paper mache. Each brick is hand made, carefully glued in place, painted with acrylic paints. The whole window and the walls of the box have been sealed with matte varnish for protection.
The figure is holding a Venetian mask which has been made with Aves Apoxie compound, decorated with golden paint designs, swarovski peridot crystals, micro beads and marabou and peacock feathers. The mask is being held by the figure with the help of a brass rod built into the mask base and wrapped with golden and silver threads. The mask is removable from the figure’s hand.
