Marina Bychkova is an internationally acclaimed dollmaker who not only puts forth extremely well-made dolls (every single thing, from the porcelain bodies, to the painted features/tattoos, to the painstakingly detailed accessories are handmade by her) but she also puts a lot of thought into their meaning.

Her dolls embody concepts such as necrophilia, Stockholm’s syndrome, women’s reproductive rights, and footbinding, among others.  I thought it was really interesting to see these subjects depicted in this medium.
