Believe it or not , this are real dolls which are painted and photographed . I haven't seen such a mastery . They are incredibly real and beautiful . The artist name is Marina Bychkova and you can have a look on her site www.enchanteddoll.com . It's so interesting to see how art takes so many shapes . She's very very talented and owing a huge capacity "patience " . I would love to see her art peaces live . I'm waiting for opinions .
