Then he added: ‘Go and have another look at the roses. And you will understand that yours is indeed unique in all the world.’

In October 2000, Rebecca arrived in a wooden crate from California, initiating what was for me a new life surrounded by life-size dolls.
Rebecca is a Realdoll created at the turn of the century by Matt and his team at Abyss Creations. Several observers have mentioned that, even in flat photos such as this (if you look away slightly) she breathes. And was that a sigh?
Rebecca shows signs of age and some obvious shortcomings of the early Realdolls. However, to me she is the most beautiful doll ever made.
