Russian artist Michael Zajkov’s skills are so precise, that the dolls he creates look disturbingly lifelike. The dolls are made of polymer clay, hand painted glass eyes, and mohair hair. Dressed in a Victorian era style, they have multiple movable joints. But the most frightening part is their faces. The artist works on every detail in order to delicately bring out explicit features and facial mimicry of each doll. The outcome is fascinating. They look as though they are about to come to life.
Zajkov graduated from Kuban State University of Russia in 2009. From 2010 to 2013 he worked at a puppet theater, while attending a graduate school. But, the recognition of his talent came after attending “Art Dolls” expo in Moscow in 2013. All images via Michael Zajkov’s Instagram.
