White Lady with Black Glove Doll

Christine’s husband left a comment in our contact section with a link to her work and we were happy to do a post about it. Christine Polis does a variety of things including creating dolls, stop-motion puppets and illustrations. Her work has a similar feel to some of Tim Burton’s movies so I wonder if she got any inspiration from those calibre of films.

This particular doll is called ‘White Lady with Black Glove’ and features a skull on top as the head.

Excerpt take from Christine Poli’ website:

“The white ladies appear for centuries, in castles on the battlefield or at the roadside. Some are ambivalent, they announce a good presage if they wear white gloves but also death if they are black”
2012 / 45cm tall / Single piece, cast resin, silk, thermoformed, organza, polymer clay, old lace.
