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

— from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, 1943

With her head tilted back, her mouth opens slightly. It is a mechanism unique to these old Realdolls where the head is permanently attached to the body.

Rebecca’s eyes do not close, so I put sunglasses on her at bed time.

Faina Anatomical Doll with steam locomotive pulling into station

Steam train girl

We picked up speed and emerged into the countryside. New impressions crowded my head […]; farms, villages, crossings, streams, old houses, stone walls, manicured pastures, all were so different and wonderful. How neat everything appeared.

— from Fighter Pilot, the Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds, describing a journey from Scotland to East Anglia in 1944 after arriving from training in P-38 fighters in the USA.

Faina is my older sister. She was made by Oleg and Irina Bartok in Vladivostok in 2013. I used a ‘curtain backdrop’ (a print on fabric of a painting) rigged in the back garden to impart the illusion that she is standing on a railway station platform.
