Seeing how the theme of this doll deals with stalking and violence against women, a part of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to the Vancouver Rape Relief & Women’s Shelter.

    That is a lovely gesture and congratulations, you both must be thrilled.
    It was a bit ironic that despite her beautiful disguise she wasn’t able to stay hidden on ebay. All worked out in the end and again Congrats!

    I’m so happy that everything is fine now! I was afraid when doll suddenly disappear from Ebay. That was unfair! Daphne is a sex toy?! What a crazy thought! Then all antique and Renaissance naked sculpture are sex toys, and our children shouldn’t visit museums! Dear Marina, you created a miracle once again. It’s an honor to be your contemporary! Congratulations to the winner, who won a great battle! Wish everybody to be kind and happy!

Warmest congratulations to you and to the winner of this truly incredible doll.

    Congratulations! Wonderful to see so much hard work, perfectionism and vision rewarded. As an artist, curator and teacher I have been following your work since impulse-buying Art Doll Quarterly on the strength of your art many years ago.

    Delighted for you both. If my boat ever comes in I’ll come looking for a piece of your art!

    I went to check ebay to see where Daphne got to only to discover that every trace of her had been removed. Very sad indeed. How amazing to have $60,000CAD to be able to spend on such a beauty. I feel I may never touch one.
