SOLD Classic Gnome 'Alva'

Poseable Classic Gnome Art Doll 'Alva'

Alva is a unique, OOAK (one-of-a-kind) fantasy art doll sculpture. No molds have been taken or used. Her head, hands and feet are sculpted in professional polymer clay, hand painted with artist's acrylics and finished with matte and gloss varnishes. She is approx. 12 inches tall to the top of her hat (7.5 inches to the top of her head), built predominantly over a strong wire armature with a soft stuffed body. Her neck armature is made from a separate plastic ball and socket armature which allows her head to be repeatedly moved and repositioned - the neck armature will never tire or break with normal use. Arms and legs are also gently poseable but care must be taken not to reposition excessively for longevity of this function. Dressed in various fabrics with a pointed dark green gnome hat and brown suede shoes, featuring clothing hand sewn and lightly aged by the artist.  Other materials include onyx bead eyes, lace and grey synthetic fibre hair.  

This sculpture is not intended as a toy and should be treated as artwork. Dust to clean - do not wet.
