So...hmmm....I keep looking at all these terrific soft toys and I'm wondering whether to post...what the hay-here she is Kiki De Montparnasse metal and paper art doll Smiley

Front

Back

I had been trying to think of something to make with a Kiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Prin
theme for a friend who is a huge fan of hers , so when I saw this challenge, it seemed to fit.
This is the original  art I took inspiration from -it's called Le Violon d'Ingres.

It is one of my favourite photographs and I love Man Ray
Kiki is wearing a little paper cone hat because once she was going into a fancy restaurant and the snooty maitre'd said she wasn't dressed correctly because she had no hat, so she took some paper and made a cone hat and everyone adored it!
Probably not a good toy to give to children under three SmileyTongue

Or children under ten for that matter lol.  While I can appreciate the creativeness it still frightens me and I'm an adult.

It is interesting and I love the story about her hat, it totally made me smile!

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

I think the best part is how the "tattoo" look like wings on her back sort of. Smiley

Man Ray was very DADA-I love that Kiki was a "large" woman and he took advantage of her shape for his picture.

I'm really impressed with this! It's great to see something more than a little bit different, especially when it takes the idea of an 'art doll' to it's logical conclusion and makes a doll directly out of, well, art  Cheesy

Excellent job!
