I’m not sure if this gaping chasm counts as a “neckline.”

Creepy, freakish dioramas and dolls. What fun!

**May I make a daily request for the Readership to send Good Thoughts, Positive Energy, Prayers, and any means of conveying support and healing to Dana. She is struggling with getting past impossible pain on an hourly basis. One can only hope doctors are able to find a way to rewire her nervous system. THANK YOU! The Proxy Blogger**

Dorote Zaukaite’s works are beautifully jointed and exquisitely posed. To me there is a faint hint of Hans Bellmer to her work, though you may disagree.

Today I’ll keep rolling with some more dolls, then switch things up for the weekend. Denise Bledsoe does some adorable creatures. When Dana showed these to me I was struck by the character and whim that comes across in her work.  I was able to narrow down the following selections to share:

Jodi and Richard Creager have been working together for over 35 years, creating wonderful, one of a kind figures. These 1:12th scale doll art characters combine art with whimsy.  Here is a sampling of their work. Hope you enjoy it!
