This is my first Chagall muse doll. I was inspired by the dream-like quality of Marc Chagall’s numerous bride paintings, which permeated his love for his wife Bella. I chose floaty, sheer fabrics to give a lightness and ethereal feel to my Bella muse.
The mages below show the working stages of creating this muse doll, which is a trial version. I hope to make several more in future, based on other Chagall paintings.
This painting was one of my references for Chagall’s muse, although I decided to give Bella green hair rather than a green face in this instance.
