This is wooden OOAK art doll created by me in 2016. It was presented at
the European Professional Doll Art festival 2016.

Height 90 cm (without the feather).

Materials: Wood, silk, leather, pearls.

This doll was partly inspired by Boudoir dolls of 1915-1930. I loved the idea behind
the boudoir dolls. They were embodying women's desires to become free. That's why many
of them were holding cigars in their mouthes. This is something that was absolutely unacceptable
for a woman to do (at least in public).

Boudoir dolls usually had cloth bodies, but I decided to work with my favourite material - wood.
It gave me an opportunity to show the idea of a free, provocative woman through the plasticity of her body.
