New Dolls on the Site – story of Makhdot.
I’ve finally uploaded the images of my three new dolls featured in Fall issue of Haute Doll magazine on my site. The new girls are: Aisha, Scheherezade and Makhdot, as seen above. I haven’t done any write ups for them yet, but they’re coming.
Makhdot features a raised, 24k gold overlay ornament on her tiny porcelain body. The intricate designs are fused into her satin skin to imply African tribal scarification, which is seen as permanent means of decorating and perfecting the body.
Makhdot is Queen Scheherezade’s servant/slave. She was taken captive on the Ivory Coast of Africa as a child and brought to the Persian Empire to be raised as a slave in the court of King ShahryÄr, who after being betrayed by his wife, marries a new virgin every night in anger for three years and has her executed in the morning.
That is until he marries Scheherezade who eventually becomes his queen.
Full story of Makhdot will be on my site next week.
