The Duchess

This is one of my favorites of the new ones. The head was sent to me by Grrl + Dog of Australia. The previous Alice and Duchess post is here.

Is that a biker helmet she´s wearing...? (some exercise might do her good, to judge from her padded jaws...)

Oooh. The Duchess always gives me a morbid thrill!

"All of the Alice figures you see here are, ultimately, descended from the Cottingley Fairies." That is so interesting - it called to mind a favorite memory - one of the most fantastic sights from my childhood. In a small bluff-town in Iowa there was a vast hillside that was teeming with larger than life-size wooden cut-out figures from Mother Goose and other children's stories - there must have been at least one hundred of them on that hill and they stopped at a forest's edge. I imagine that all of your wondrous characters would have had quite the time there romping amongst all the fairyland giants!

The head adds such interesting texture to the scene.

I'm loving these 3D/2D collages!
Thanks.

This doll is too pretty for the duchess, don't you think?

Have you ever seen the 1930's movie version of "Alice..." with Edna May Oliver as the Red Queen? Love her!

CG - I take your point, however there is a certain stolidity in the porcelain which I think goes well with the character.

And an undiscovered Massys has just been found in a damp English Church!

Love the headgear.
