Turkish Doll

Turkish Female Doll in Traditional Costume. Not the wife of Day 43’s soldier with fez.

I think this one was  a childhood gift from my parent’s friends who are Turkish. She is quite beautiful. She’s made from mainly plastic, with some kind of canvas material over her face. You might make out the texture if you click on the detail below. Her face is hand-painted, with cupid lips. I did not shoot her undergarments, but she has on stockings, and a slip. A very modest lass.

She is not able to stand up without support. Not sure if she did originally, and a part is missing, or she just gave up trying after all this time of being neglected, wrapped in tissue paper and stuffed under the bed.

Status: A bit of tricky one. Now that’s she’s unwrapped I am in love with her colours.
