Wow. That’s all I can say. Well, that and eeeeeeeeek! These Chaquira Doll Head Sculptures were featured on Fab.com recently and as much as I delight in sourcing quirky and original gifts for people, I am at a loss to think of who might appreciate these little beauties. The collection has been designed by DFC studio in Mexico City, in collaboration with Mexican artists, and features a range of creepy looking dolls. Well, doll heads, to be precise. There’s that weird looking Smurfy one with the big earrings.
And then there’s this guy, who appears to be based either on a soccerball or Justin Bieber riddled with measles. Spooky.
Or this little lady, who looks even creepier because of the hand that’s holding her head-on-a-stump, which appears to be wearing some sort of chainmail fingerless glove. Rock on. She looks a bit like Lady Gaga, but for me, it’s the eyes that do it – they might appear to be sunken into the little doll’s head, but they follow you wherever you move. Even if you move to another city and think you’ve left this doll deep in a box in storage.
Ok, one last pic and then I’ve reached my limit of creepy for the day.It’s either Cindy Brady or a Cabbage Patch Kid gone wrong. The hair elastics suggest a game of tennis, while the eyelashes scream the late show at Fifi’s Bordello.
I don’t know about you, but I find these very confusing. Although even more confusing is the price – any of these doll head sculptures will set you back nearly $600. Yes, really.
