Faina as Siouxsie
A human blade. A bird of prey. Siouxsie Sioux.
—Quoted from the narrative of the BBC documentary Queens of British Pop
The close-up photo of Faina in 2013, taken by Oleg or Irina before she (Faina) left the factory in Vladivostok, shows that the freckles on her face are lighter than those on her body.
New dolls, like kittens, need lots of sleep before they can make sense of the world.
The eyes on these heads do not close. This is a separate head, identical except that it has closed eyes. The head goes onto a steel shaft that projects upwards from the middle of the neck and is secured by a screw.
Oleg Bartok of Vladivostok started out by sculpting uniquely realistic and extravagantly beautiful heads for his Realdoll. Then he turned the doll world upside-down by creating large dolls with fully realistic proportions. They too were extravagantly beautiful and unique in a way that inspires people who see one for the first time to remark, “She looks Russian.”
