From Russia with....imagination

Not only are Ima Naroditskya's dolls beautiful and polished examples of dollmaking, her website is extraordinarily fun too. I like the curtain pulling conceit. It adds to the fantasy element and makes every thumbnail a fanciful treasure hunt. All her characters so clearly have a history and a narrative behind them. She also designs glass figure christmas tree ornaments. (Don't fail to run your cursor over the little yellow fellows guarding the procenium.)
BTW I should give proper credit to this photo which I believe is by Mimi Kirchner.
