Lydia is special.. she is unique. One of a kind hand painted art doll. A magnificent Tattooed Lady from Victorian cabinet of curiosities... in a black, burlesque corset...


Mysterious lady comes and goes as she pleases. Wild like the tattoos on her body. Performs with a

This special doll comes from my collection of sideshow dolls. Her tattoos are wild, inspired by a vintage picture of long time gone Lady with a rose in her hair... This body inking pictures a wild exotic life.. lions, palms, butterflies, tribal patterns of sun, rain... rivers, landscapes, plants.
Lydia is dressed in black corset accented with pink elements. She's wearing black boots with pink soles.

All the detail, all the features are painted by hand and the base is a cloth body made by me. Her arms are movable, connected to the body with small black faceted beads and black string.
Head is very slightly movable.


Lydia is a tiny bit more than 9.5" high. (25cm)
She's signed on the back ( signature is hidden in the tattoos)
