Power Figure Doll Sculpture

I’m working with a lot of different ideas and concepts here but basically this is my art doll version of African power figures – especially Nkisi and Bocia figures.

Her deformities are based on neurofibromatosis.

Her right arm (the little one) is antique German bisque: the rest of the figure is hand-made/hand-sculpted by me in fabric, Magic Sculpt and PaperClay.

Additive material includes fabric, fiber, beads and antique doll parts.
