The Knitter

When I started sculpting this doll, I wasn’t sure what I was really doing. The more I worked on it, the more I began to see, rising from the head, the look of an old lady at the turn of the century.

Her clothes are made of antique silk and cotton scarfs. I guess she could be a part of The Miserables (famous novel by Victor Hugo), but I prefer to think of her as an old knitter who sits in a park in Paris and enjoys knitting for other people. She works all day long, listening to the birds and the rumors of the city, even it does not pay much.
