STEAM PUNK DOLL


To my surprise I found this doll at the flea market today. Not until I picked her up did I realize she was a doll machine. You crank her up and she walks. Has anyone out there seen this doll? Please let me know if you have. I'm thrilled, she's perfect for the female lead in my new movie. Now if I can just get her to talk.

Kevin,

From seeing this post I know a wonderful piece of art will immerge. The only other thing I have to say at this time is, “Somebody needs a Dremel”, guess I know what to get you for Christmas, lol. – gary

I don't know whether to laugh or to howl; some of these anatomy studies, although indifferently lighted, are among the more moving ripostes to Rembrandt and Eakins I have ever seen. They make me want to run on out for my next MRI right away. Kevin, only one entry before, I had remarked that one sees you everywhere in these postings. I'm prepared to modify that compliment if you insist, but perhaps I hadn't gone too far at that. Sublime, as Burke would say.

What happened to her skull? It looks as though someone lobotomized her- does she have the innerwurkens in her head to make sounds? To talk? Kevin- sometimes you are surpassing strange in your pursuits.

That mechanism is really a work of art. Real doll collectors will probably excoriate you, but it looks much better in its current incarnation.

What a cool find. No, I've never seen a doll like that. She is destined to be a star.

I agree with Parnassus — she looks better deconstructed! I'll be very interested to see what you do with her head. I know it will be a fine piece of art!

I just love the .... mood?...that overcomes me when I see something like this. There's beauty, function, modification, simplifying, and attention to the workings of a mechanic long gone...honor to the work...intention..all make for a pleased sensation. thanks
