Doll Masterpieces

Never thought I'd ever be crazy about dolls... but I finally am when I'm no longer considered a child anymore... 

It all began with Noel Cruz. His dolls are created by rubbing off the original paint on a doll and repainting by hand. Cruz prefers to copy celebrities. But, what makes his work unique is his amazing ability to make the dolls spitting images of the celebrity. He sells his creations on ebay. Currently, he is auctioning Orlando Bloom and Madonna as in Dick Tracy.

However, though, I was extremely impressed... I didn't give the dolls a second thought... that is until I bumped into Marina Bychkova's work... 
The only reason why I didn't care for Cruz's work is that I'm not too fascinated by celebrities... However, I LOVE LOVE the ethereal fantasy dolls. Bychkova's dolls are so fairy tale like (I've always been obsessed with fairy tales, and their beauty far exceeds real human beauty... It's like a freakish exagerrated beauty... And, each one is COMPLETELY handmade. 

Plus, she makes quite a few Asian dolls, which I love! 

Not sure why this doll has male bits... Is it supposed to be one of the Asian boy girl beauties??
Here are my three favorites below:
I just love the range of movement these dolls have... You can put them in such elegant poses!
I'm sure these dolls cost more than just a pretty penny and prices are not displayed on her site. 

Anyway, I think it's great to see dolls as artwork that can be considered as masterpieces!
