Traveling Art Doll-Victoria- Team Muneca

Victoria is on her way to London. She is part of the Art Dolls Only, Traveling Doll Project. Hand sculpted from polymer clay, Victoria has movable arms, big hands, big feet and a permanent look of surprise on her face. She was not what her mother, the darling and star of the circus, expected when she was born. Tiny Margaritte, tight rope walker and Jon, elephant trainer, had high hopes for their child. We know that she will be part of the circus family, but where will she end up , we do not know. The rest of Victoria's story will be told my Jasmoon Butterfly of London and Ayala Art in California. Victoria was sent to London a blank canvas. It is up to the other two artists to complete the doll and tell the rest of her story.

Along with Victoria is a journal that travels with her. I placed a picture frame on the cover so that her picture can change as she changes and a picture of the final doll can grace the cover at the end of her journey. The journal is made from brown paper bags covered with different scrapbook papers. I can't wait to see the changes that will happen to Victoria and to read about her travels in her journal.

I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of Luna from Ayala Art. She is traveling to Florida from California. Together we will dance in the moonlight.


  1. This is so exciting!! I know by the time I see Victoria, she will look all different from this picture. And you'll have Luna in a couple of more days!

  2. Love this doll and her story. Look forward to watching her journey
