She was a miserable ghost,
Le Fantôme Miserable
Her life had been but pen and ink
Imaginings of a mortal soul
This ghostly art doll sculpture is made with a vintage copy of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.
The book carries the doll which is made with beautiful old textiles and lace that have been stiffened.
Her faceless head is surrounded by long, deep brown mohair,
delicately woven into shape.
Her hands are those similar to the Victorian Mourning Art,
made of clay and crackled.
She measures approx 15″ by 7″ inches
