Melancholy Marionettes

I purchased these lovely little doll parts from happysteiler's shop on Etsy. 
I put them in a tiny shaker box that was handmade by a local artisan.

They are so sweet and a little sad too. 
Melancholy marionettes without strings.

They remind me of a series of anatomical paintings I made years ago.
Perhaps I can find them and show you.

Please do show them!! These are delightful (even if just a little bit creepy too - in a good way though...)

What different times we live in.
Imagine the uproar that would be provoked if these were marketted for little children!
