Want of the Day: Macabre Victorian Dolls

Today I need something a little macabre to fill the hole that True Detective has left.  [And OMG, I did not breathe for that whole hour of television and whoever was the production designer for the Carcosa sequence needs to design everything ever.]

It's mostly sticks, fabric, and paint.  HOW IS THAT SO SCARY!?
Good thing artist Jessica Harrison has created these delightfully violent Victorian-inspired porcelain figures!

These glass women capture the elegance and homogeneous femininity of the 19th century, then contrast it with vicious acts of mutilation.


Check out the links for more, including a beheading and lots of viscera!
