The Case of Enchanted Dolls
I just received this beautiful, custom made case. Inside, are my two resin EDs: Kay and Clymenestra.
One of the gifts I had received for my birthday was a shadow box. I loved it so much, that I commissioned the participant who made it for me to make me a smaller one. My obsession with coffins and containment is well documented and this is another manifestation of it. I remember when Chad and I were in Sicily, we went to the Catacombs of the Capuchins to see the mummies, there was an exceptionally well preserved mummy of a little girl “Bambina” in a coffin with a glass lid. That really made an impression on me. I’m not sure what the impression was, but the memory of the experience had certainly stuck with me. I think it just served to further reinforce my interest in human boxes/coffins and the idea of confinement and preservation.
I really love this case. Thanks Jayne.
