Virgin

2010

This porcelain doll features a one of a kind, sterling silver crown with a 24k gold plate and a new, limited edition face design in the style of Italian Renaissance painting, particularly that of Leonardo Da’Vinci.

This project is also heavily inspired by religious art, especially the imagery of Virgin Mary, who is frequently portrayed as a fragile and radiant crowned creature.

In the fashion of gem-encrusted reliquaries and jewels stored in the collections of the Vatican and the Luvre museums, this crown is decadently adorned with pink tourmaline gems, fresh water pearls, cubic Zirconiun and Swarowsky crystals. Both the crown and the magnetic wig are independently detachable from the head.

 

Materials:

Constructed, sterling silver crown, 24 karat gold plate, pink tourmalines, fresh water Pearls, cubic zirconia, Swarovski crystals, magnetic mohair wig. Porcelain, china paint, industrial springs. 13.5” (34.5cm) tall.
