Well here’s a thing.  These new porcelain/rag bodied dolls are too big for my box format, so I have branched out a bit.  I don’t know why I decided to remove the head – habit I guess….but then I got to thinking, what about making some kind of hybrid.  In taxidermy, this is called crypto-taxidermy – it’s how mythical creatures can be invented.  It think it looks a bit like a portrait, rather than a picture taken to show what I have been making – like the Bunnychild was taken by its parents  to one of those photographers on high street, or in a shopping mall.  It was in fact taken by award-winning photographer Martin Figura, who added the vignette effect for me.
