“People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right.”
James O’Barr, The Crow

    This new work is compelling. Who is this beauty? She is breath-taking. Is she giving life, is she singing? I love her Corvid companion. She is stunning, so beautiful, her mouth, her brows. Thank you for sharing her xxx

    She is divine! Such a lovely face.

    She is so lovely. Really like the doey (not sure if that is the right word) eyes and open mouth details. Did you make to crow bird prop or did you buy it? Wondering if the Raven and Crow are the same.

      A raven is a raven and a crow is a crow. There is a big difference, mainly in size. A crow has a wingspan of wingspan 32 to 40 inches, while the wingspan of a raven can be 46 to 54 inches! Ravens are huge! They can also become very old, about 30 years, whereas the life span of a crow is about 8 years.

      Stunning doll, by the way :P Does she have any tattoos?

    I love this wig, this doll and her expresion. The photo shot is so lovely, I like so much when I see the color orange red and blues together.

    The meaning is beautiful.

    This whole scene looks striking and hauntingly beautiful, like on a dark Halloween night! I like crows, especially sitting in a field on a golden hay bale, with the Summer sun pouring down on them. This doll is especially pretty and she captivates my heart!

    It is so good to see this glorious creature again. She has always been one of my all time favorites of yours. Those brows, that open mouth, THOSE LIPS <3 Will this be her final incarnation Marina, will she be the raven of souls? Does she still have the heart tattoo? So many questions haha…. GWORGEOUS <3

    Gorgeous photos!

    Эффектно! Нельзя не вспомнить и про “Ворона” Эдгара По.

  10. Kristin Aquino says:

    Her eyes have so much expression.
    She wears her heart for all to see.

  11. Merie says:

    Wow she’s really beauty! and ravens’ are my favorite bird, in earlier times, these black birds were often belived to be aspects of the Morrigan, representing dead and diying, can’t wait to see what wonderful new idea you have in mind. <3
    God bless you <3 you're my biggest inspiration.

    beautiful composition. they say that crows not only are signs of possible death, but also a messenger to the Self, to be aware of changes coming and to deal with them the best one can.

    but this is a great setup, and i love that paragraph taken from the comic, it still gives me chills to read it

    nicely done.

  13. Sarah says:

    I love this doll- I loved her before but the thicker eyebrows and this wig really suit her. I hope she still has her heart tattoo!

  14. crystal Bernard says:

    I just love these kinds of stories. So much one can do with it! She is wonderful, she reminds me of a previous doll. What an exciting idea to make a Halloween headpiece! And wings! But I’m getting carried away here with what is to come. Or my hopes of what is to come! Not that she needs anything at all.

  15. ace says:

    i love her sweet round eyes and the open mouth (like everyone)! she looks so innocent overall, but each photograph at the different angles and with the lighting seem to capture a different mood. i’m so in love with her!!!

  16. Elena Kurtik says:

    Чудесная куколка, но я ее не нашла в Вашей галерее. Кто она?

  17. Bonjour Marina,
    Vos poupées sont absolument magnifiques et fantastiques ! Un grand bravo !

    Ohhh I just got goosebumps… beautiful. She kind of reminds me of the actresses who played Shelly and Sarah. A beautiful tragedy.
