In this sculpture I have tried to capture the image of Empress Elisabeth,  aged about 57.

It is not certain how she looked at later age, because she refused to have her picture taken and hid behind her fan or a veil.

The painting of Leopold Horowitz was the inspiration for this doll.

She is hand sculpted from polymer clay and painted with artists oils.

No molds used,  no molds were taken.

Since the death of her son she only wore black.
So, I dressed her in a fine black silk and lace dress.
Of course she holds her fan and a small reticule.

Her famous hair is braided and styled on her head like a crown.

Her laced short boots are made of leather. shoes
