Hey-ya everybody! Oh boy, I sure missed you guys! It’s been six months since my last blogging.

I’m finally back with a long-awaited, new porcelain doll! You’ve seen sneak peaks of her in progress before, but the time has come for you to finally see her in full! She will be sold at my annual Enchanted Doll auction November 30th-December 3rd.

So, without further ado let me present, my latest, one of a kind, heavily engraved, porcelain Enchanted Doll – Madame de Pompadour!

This doll will be auctioned off through ebay. Originally Madame de Pompadour was intended for the Luxford auction house in Hong Kong, but the timing of the auction didn’t work out this time around, so I decided to go with ebay on November 30th-December 3rd.

I’ll show you more photos and tell you more about this doll next week. In the meantime, please enjoy these and save the auction dates Wednesday, November 30th – Saturday, December 3rd, 2016!

Can’t wait to show you the rest.

    Hold on, as I pickup my eyes and mouth from the floor. She is a masterpiece worthy of a king or queen, just WOW. Missed seeing your updates and pictures. Hope that all is well.

  13. Elcatka says:

    Марина, мы тебя уже потеряли! Хорошо что ты вернулись *миллион сердечек*
    Кукла потрясающая!

  14. Kitty says:

    Oh my god, the wig alone is a centerpiece! Seriously, the doll is stunning but I’d buy the wig and put it in a glass cabinet in the centre of the room and have visitors fawn over it. Truly amazing. Yes, post lots and lots of pictures, please, because there’s no way I’d ever be able to make even an opening bid for her, and I’d love to see every inch of her up close.

  15. Tina says:

    Absolutely stunning. I could never part with such a doll. Thank you for sharing your amazing gift!

  16. Alexandra says:

    Beautiful doll! Love her simply gorgeous smile and gentle face. And i’m so happy to hear a news from you again!

  17. Елена Куртик says:

    Очаровательное создание! При виде этого коварного взгляда и лукавой улыбки я просто таю. Очень жду новых фото Мадам.

  18. Eve says:

    Will the little ships ever be available to purchase? They are so amazing!!!

  19. Gaynor says:

    She is breathtaking (gasps!). Can’t take my eyes off her. It’s so nice to hear from you again. We were all a little concerned about your silence … imagining all kinds of crazy scenarios!

  20. Анжела says:

    Кукла хороша! Но как такой большой парик у неё держится на голове…

  21. Amal says:

    You must have been doing an engineering course during your absence – becaise that wig defies gravity, surely! Does it really stay on unsupported?! Her face is one of your best yet! It’s great to hear from you again – hope you are well, Marina!

  22. Hello Marina!

    Great to “read you” again!

    It’s been said before but how else can I say it- you are a genius!!! Always several steps ahead of everyone else, creating unexpected, stunning and every-time-new pieces!

    This masterpiece is so beautiful, incredibly detailed and beyond everything else we have seen so far! She has such a gorgeous, delicate face, yet looks very powerful in her signature wig. Then again, my heart goes to her in her with her simpler hairdo- she immediately becomes very fragile, almost tragic in her appearance, making me think of Cinderella (the character) before the Great Ball or even The Little Match Girl (although I feel her story would’ve been one involving love, amongst other things)…

    Your artistry embodied in this doll brings to mind the most complex, elaborate jewellery pieces gathered by Catherine the Great and owned by the Romanovs.

    Filigree, yet powerful. Most intricate and awe-inspiring.

    Once again, you have exceeded what can be defined as “doll artistry”. This marvellous piece would make a wonderful exhibit in the Hermitage for hundred thousands to enjoy. :)

    Simply marvelous!!!!!! Congratulations Marina!!
    Be inspired!!
    Regards from Greece!

  24. Anthony says:

    It is so good to see you back Marina!!!! I know I am going to sound like a broken record fan boy when I saw this, but I am truly and utterly gobsmacked by this new masterpiece. I mean truly above and beyond anything I have EVER seen you do Marina!!! She truly is just absolute and utter magic. Everything about her from that inquisitive Mona Lisa stair to that incredible pink ocean of a wig, I mean can we talk about that wig!!!! Those ships look to be at see in those glorious curls & braids. We truly are not worthy…. Just WOW!!!!

  25. Nanyalin says:

    Lovely, Marina! Great work!
    And since the heads are detacheable, one could play French Revolution with the doll! (but the pain of stringing it back, uh : / ) ; P

    • Jacci says:

      ok, this comment made me laugh. seriously, there’s already the one photo of a beheading, (Salome) now Marina could do another. it would make for some interesting photos for sure, if not a little grotesque.

  26. Sonia Anne says:

    Thank-you, Marina! Another breathtaking masterpiece! Madame P didn’t only knock my socks off, but
    shook my whole body! I am sure that I will be dreaming of her for days to come! Good luck with the Auction!

  27. Jacci says:

    welcome back lady, we missed you.
    and as for Madam P. well, words don’t describe. she is true Art.
    glad to see you back, hope all is well with you and Chad, and good luck with the auction. i’m sure it’ll be a nail biter for those bidding.
    and that wig, its just deliciously wow. amazing job as always.

  28. Jacci says:

    just gotta add that i love the color scheme of the doll, all pink, blue and gold. beautiful.

  29. MollyTheWanderer says:

    1. I missed you! Honestly, I was worried there for a bit.

    2. OMG that face! She’s gorgeous!

  30. MollyTheWanderer says:

    I mean, really, she looks like she’s looking at me. She looks real.

  31. Astera says:

    What a pleasure to have news from you, Marina. And the doll…Pure joy! it’s so nice to finally see the full masterpiece in all its lovely details! Surely the formal wig is a firework of grandeur, but I have to say that the informal, smaller wig you made for her is also quite beautiful. It’s delicate and has those locks so naturally falling around her face…I like how it highlights the elegance of her features. Anyways, congratulation for this great work and best of luck with the auction.

  32. Good to see you again Marina :D, we miss you very much but the waiting definitive worths!!! She is an absolute masterpiece, the detail for its size is incredible :3!!! We will be waiting for more pictures !

    You and doll are beyond words…depicting creator and created art form. Beyond WOW factor❣

  34. Jill Jackson says:

    It’s so good to hear from you, Marina. Madame P. I beautiful. As amazing as the wig is, I think I prefer her in her more natural state. She has a refreshing innocence with still an air of intrigue. Just stunning.

    Hugs, Jill

    Hi Marina :-)

    wow, she is sooooo stunning! Her tattoos are of course DIVINE but I love her face and eyes even more :-) There is so much light in her eyes and her expression, wonderful! Her lips/mouth reminds me a LITTLE bit of your Elisabeth Bathory somehow lol

    I am sure this doll will break records when you put her on ebay ;-)

  37. Melissa says:

    She is just breath taking! Everything about her is perfect. I keep coming back time and time again just to gaze at her in awe! I’m so looking forward to the excitement of the auction, but it will be bittersweet as it will possibly be the last we ever get to see of her!

    Marina, I just love her. Her eyes, full of fun and so beguiling at the same time. She has the most amazing expression, as though there is boundless joy welling up inside and so regal. I love her tattoos, they are breath-takingly beautiful. She is magical, stunning and the wig, just wow to the power of infinity. How. Do. You. Do. It. You genius.

    伟大的工作 她让我想像出一只不怕被关在笼子里的夜莺,优雅而不在乎任何事情的神情。精巧的脸,笑的很神秘。就像一个非常清晰的梦境一般——美在她的身上闪烁着。身体的美丽 衣饰的美丽 纹身的美丽——我都不知道该说什么好了。 第一次看到你的微笑着的人偶,非常成功。配色完美。或许是一个新的开端?不管怎样,衷心赞美你的工作。它们是活的。

  42. Syaron says:
