Dried Gourd Dolls
Aviva is 20.5" tall. Her head is made from the stem of a dried gourd. Her arms and body are made from Apoxie Sculpt and plaster. She is mounted to a wood base.
In Hebrew the meaning of the name Aviva is: "Innocent; Springtime". Which is reflected in the choice of materials and color palette. She was created in 2012.
These faces were made using the "bulb" of the dried gourd. I further defined the facial features I saw in the material using Apoxie Sculpt.
All of the heads are roughly 3" X 4" inches and are made to hang on the wall. They were made in 2012.
