Tattooed Baby Doll D.
Bisque, stamped "FOREIGN" on the back.
I'd love to say "from a loving home, carefully stored for decades" but these dolls bear the hallmarks of having been unearthed, forgotten, and laid alongside rusting materials.
They are rather, "due for a loving home".
Painted with acrylic ink.
6.5 x 2.5 x 3cm
I toyed with mounting these in boxes, but I'm of the opinion that if something can dangle, it should. Preferring to hang my own treasures, I decided instead to add a loop of a thread. You can still mount it, but I didn't want to be the one putting body parts in a box.
Have I saved one to put on my own Christmas tree? YES. Will it be packed away for a year? Absolutely not. A tattooed baby doll is for all year round.
