Description

OOAK art interior doll Gnaga. 
Gnaga is the historical Venetian carnival character whose origin dates back to the 13th century. At carnivals people were expected to hide their true personality. So one of the most popular carnival tradition was for men to disguise themselves as women. They got dressed up in the vulgar and untidy clothes of their house-maids or wet-nurses. They liked to prank and fool around meowing like cats. Cat's masks covered their faces. "Gnau" is the Venetian word for the meowing of cats. "Gnau" also meant a shrill unpleasant voice, like that of a flayed cat. That's why such carnival character was called "gnaga".

My Gnaga doll is named Valerio. He is a tireless teaser and a fierce fighter and he likes to provoke brawls and scuffles. He is full of air and graces. Valerio puts on his wet-nurse's dress and whets the carnival crowd.

Despite Valerio's tough nature he is quite a good fellow - brave, simple and honest. He can become your loyal friend who will always give you a support and an adventure spirit.

The doll's head, arms and legs are sculptured from the oven-baked clay. The face is painted with natural pigments and acrylic colors. The eyes are made of glass. The black curls are natural sheep mohair. The body is soft and has a wired frame inside. Gnaga Valerio is fixed on the wooden stand. He is holding a cat mask in his hand. All his clothes are sewn by me. The size of the doll is 50 cm/ 20".

This doll is not a toy but an interior item. Please don't wash it. The face and hands can be wiped with a dry soft cloth.

Please feel free if you need more details on this doll. I am happy to communicate.

Gnaga VALERIO and DREAM TRAIN OF DOLLS wish you good luck and a happy day!
