Who knew these dolls had these many secrets?
Definitely not me since the only way to find out their secrets is by cutting up their stomach to reveal the contents inside. But don’t worry, it’s not as gruesome as it sounds. Instead, it is quite creepy in a fantastical way, to the say the least.
The artist behind these amazing and unique works of art is Mari Shimizu and surprisingly he was actually inspired by the unnerving yet explorative works of art by Hans Bellmer. Mari Shimizu’s dolls might not be as disturbing as what Hans had originally created but they do explore themes such as religion and death invoking many feelings in the viewers.
