Gnowee, Aboriginal Sun Goddess Now available on Etsy

Fresh back fro Australia, Gnowee is now available in the Etsy Shop


Originally created for the Once Upon A Blythe Exhibition in Melbourne, Australia at the Auguste Clown Gallery. The theme for the show was Fairies and Folklore. Since the Gallery show was in Australia, I wanted to honor the continents indigenous peoples the Aborigines. They have a tradition deep in folklore and tales told during what is called Dream Time, one of these tales is of a woman called Gnowee.
The Sun Goddess of the Wotjobaluk Indigenous people of Southeast Australia. 

The Tale of Gnowee
Gnowee lived on the earth at a time when the sky was dark and people used torches to see their way. One day while she was gathering yams, her baby son wandered away. With a huge torch, Gnowee set off in search of her son, but she could not find him. She continues to search, lighting the whole sky with her torch as she searches for her son. It is said that if she ever finds her son, the world would be plunged into eternal darkness.

Gnowee is an original Takara Blythe Heather Sky on an Authentic Pure Neemo S Flection Body.
She has been carefully airbrushed a golden brown complexion with a shimmering golden couture.
Her carving reflects her Aboriginal heritage and her face-up and body work were applied using Artists Chalk Pastels and Mica Powders. Her face and body are been adorned with traditional Aboriginal Dot Paintings.

~Gnowee's Hair
She has a hand dyed soft Alpaca ombre reroot in a medium brown to a gradient coppery blonde.
~Gnowee's Custom Eyes 
Front gaze: Almond Doll Hand painted in Earth and Sea. 
Left gaze: Sabparos Realistic blues regular pupil. 
Right gaze: Sabparos Realistic in blue shine with large pupil.
Her Lids have a subtle golden shimmer adorned with traditional Aboriginal Dots and accentuated with lush lashes.
She has sleep eyes and has gaze lift.
~Gnowee's Pulls
Her Jewelry Grade Amulet Pulls are of Tiger's Eye, a member of the quartz gemstones with a radiant golden to red-brown colour, with a silky luster. This is a powerful stone that aids with harmony and balance, and helps to release fear and anxiety.
Traditionally carried as an amulet against curses or ill-wishing, and is known to give courage, self confidence, and strength of will. Her beads consist of two styles of rich wooden hand carved beads, Golden filigree minis beads, Gold flecked glass and Smokey Quartz beads on brown satin ribbons. 
~Gnowee's Clothing
She wears a buttery soft leather headdress adorned with delicate gold chains and leather straps. Her sarong is made of cotton fabric printed with a Dancing Spirit Aboriginal Pattern with a brown leather fringed belt. Her jewelry consists of golden arm bands, bracelets and an anklet. 

Her stand is made of Birch Wood depicting the red rocks and bush lands of South East Australia. In hand is her torch which LED flames flicker and glow beneath a mystical metal halo. The battery operated LED lights have an On/Off button on the stand. 

Gnowee comes with a signed adoption booklet detailing her story, work done and photos. She is for the adult collector only and is strictly an art doll. Due to her delicate finish she should always be handled with great care as to not damage her finish. Since she is a customized doll be aware that she is not factory perfect.


Jaelyn, Custom Takara Blythe Lacrosse Goalie

Custom Commissioned Little Lacrosse Goalie. 
The client wanted a mini version of his daughter who graduated from High School with a College Lacrosse Scholarship. It was a fun challenge to bring the vision for little Jaelyn to life but so much fun. 
I hand sculpted the Lacrosse stick and sewed in the netting and even added a ball and racquet details, custom painted helmet with the help of my talented husband, created a completely custom uniform with shoes and shin guards and all proper emblems, hand dyed rerooted Alpaca hair, hand painted eye chips, carved features and piercings and completed with a diorama field stand with turf and Goalies Net.
I was also so honored and lucky enough to be able to hand deliver this little one to her new owner as she was going away to college. I never get the opportunity to deliver and meet my clients in person since they are mostly international and/or in other states so this was a real treat for me to see her reaction. 

SImone, Custom Beautiful Brown Blythe Middie

Introducing Simone, a Custom Commissioned Takara Middie Blythe Q Tea Party on a Pure Neemo XS Flection Body. She has been carfully airbrushed a yummy milky chocolate color. She has a super soft black Suri Alapaca Mohair Wig by Sleeping Elf and a pair of my signature hand painted eye chips in a pretty sparkling hazel. She has lush lashes and shimmering pink lids. She has a very delicate carving and pretty pink contoured face-up with whispy brows.   This special little Middie was a Custom Commission and is ready to head to her new home in Texas.

The Littlest Blythe

When I first started collecting Blythe 2010/11, I started with the LPS version. 
So cute, so tiny, their 1/2th scale fit our dollhouses perfectly and was more cost efficient 
which really worked for me at the time just starting to photograph dolls. 
In 2012 Pure Neemo released the Pico Neemo body, I created this hybrid back then and 
I felt it really gave them life and made photographing them much more fun. 
I still have tons of LPS and I am planning on photographing them more, they are so neglected. 
So for now I will star to share my LPS throw back photos.

When Inspiration Takes a Backseat to Plagiarism

An artist claiming to find his original inspiration from his "doll like wife"?

Israeli local Actor and Artist blatantly copied Blythe Artists customs and photographs without giving any credit to the artists, being dishonest, stating his original inspiration was derived from his "doll like wife". With no mention of Blythe Dolls or the various artists works and photographs in which he undeniably copied. Works which were in some cases copied exactly varying only in a change of hair or eye chip color. So sad when people with actual talent lack integrity. His skills are good enough but he lacks virtue and a bit of perspective.

These side by side comparison photos speak for themselves.

Here is an on line Israeli news post and Interview with accompanying story in which I have translated below.

Now try local and international artists to band together to file a huge lawsuit against Baruch . Baruch : " Art as art is allowed to draw everything." Voila ! Celebs curator

Avital began to investigate the issue further and discovered that she was not alone - she says , softly using the works of many artists abroad significant inspiration for his paintings , without giving them credit. 

So what artists say Zion Baruch copies ?

He never denied that the sources of his inspiration were Russian dolls, Japanese and Israeli companies also famous Instagram, online and in the media world in general. Each dolls ( by the way, neither painted) He gave his personal adaptation as Htz'iborskh added every female character. "

"Art as art is allowed to draw everything, like Andy and Rahel drew Mickey Mouse and Disney did not demand it, or painted Coca-Cola and they did not demand it - that Zion Baruch was inspired dolls already exist: doll Htz'iborskh - Russian doll founder from the 70 and other doll that comes from the United States.
There are so many artists who paint inspired by the BLYTHE ".
