This image is an interpretation of a display of puppets designed by João Paulo Seara Cardoso, which are on display at the Teatro de Marionetas do Porto. Part of my 'Negative Facespace' series, I sometimes use the alternative title of 'Pity the Poor Immigrant', courtesy of Bob Dylan.
A doll with an understated but all too obvious pissed off look of manic intent. Usually it's the eyes that convey the manic nature; when the pupil is positioned dead-centre of the eye socket and is staring straight ahead we recognise the stereotypical sign of movie-style madness. In this case, however, the fixity of the mouth accentuates the effect of the eyes. This doll is as close to human as they get. Another from the 'Negative Facespace' series of images.
Elsa from the Disney film 'Frozen' gets the 'Negative Facespace' treatment. Because much of popular culture passes me by, I had no idea what this doll was when I set up this image. My only thought was that she looked suitably eerie. My granddaughters enlightened me and even sang the songs, but I still think she's unnaturally sinister. I mean, check out that eye!
