Pinocchia

* Pinocchia *

Wooden child from “The strangest Funfair on Earth” series

*

Her story might be different from the one of Pinocchio… she’s a girl after all, and girls do everything quite differently from boys…

For a start, girls seem to realize few important things very early…  and Pinocchia..well..  still as a log – one glance in the mirror and she knew something’s not exactly right.. and that things needed to be set straight.

Her mommy ( doll sculptor)  found her in the woods… that is – she found a strange looking piece of wood, which  ..blinked… and smiled?! So she took it home and immediately used some tools on it..

Later on there was a “missing” advert in the daily “Twin Peaks” newspaper… apparently local curiosity “Lady with the log” lost her … erm…log… but by the time any such advert was or wasn’t read, it was too late, as the log became a doll…

Pinocchia , girl made of wood, wanted to become a living and breathing girl, so she embarked on a journey filled with thrills and adventures… and in the search of her dream she met many different people, and seen lots of horrible and wonderful places…. and one day she  unknowingly crossed the gate of Enchanted Funfair….

Being a strongly magical creature, Pinocchia was welcomed at the Funfair with open arms… (and no ticket fee, which was very fortunate as her pockets, if she had any, were terribly empty)…

And after a long talk with the mysterious Maestro, the head of the whole wonderful and strange place, she was given a job….  a little stall with dolls just like herself, but tiny, child-like, to sell at the funfair to those who wanted their life to be less lonely….

Pinoccia still has 1098 dolls in her little shop… and when the shelves are finally empty… she will become……… a girl…. and that will be the beginning of  new and great adventure…

The End?

For curious souls, the whole doll took me full two weeks to complete (from 10a.m. to 10 p.m). All clothes are hand sewn, all details are handmade with greatest care and lots of love.
