The Spirit of the Past Collection This exhibition presents 20 dolls, six of which are on display for the first time. Every doll is a one-of-a-kind, fine art, historical costume figurine, made of polymer clay (head and shoulders, torso, hands and legs), wire and fabric. Every doll's costume consists of a minimum two layers of clothing and presents one-of-a-kind fashion. The exhibition reflects an artistic approach to the costumes and fashions of Baroque, Rococo, Empire/ Regency, Victorian and Edwardian time periods.
