Espíritu... an unusual piece...
I found this little doll's head on one of my walks to the beach with the pups. I picked it up on the way back and brought it home. It is unusual for its dark skin color and bright green eyes. It seems like she is looking at you. For a long time I had her in my studio on a shelf, just there... idle. However with time it seemed to grow on me, almost like I could see into its soul and I could see a bit of darkness in it.
Eventually she was incorporated into an unusual piece together with other found objects. The little head being the core, and other pieces hanging and dangling from it. As if dependent on her strength.
