Golden Lilly 2010
Golden Lilly is a One of a kind, engrave-tattooed doll. This project is another piece in my ongoing series of dolls with Eastern Themes, and another example of my exploration and an ambivalent infatuation with the practice of foot binding.
A Golden Lilly name refers to the ideal, three inch long, bound foot.
Magnetic wig of fine silk fiber is adorned with removable, hand-painted, sterling silver hair accessories. Her tiny, hand carved, sterling silver shoes made for bound feet are plated with 24k gold and painted with synthetic enamel.
