"HARRY HOUDINI"The Great Mystifier, by artist Victoria Mock.
This auction is for a fun collectable of the dark, mysterious turn-of-the-century magician, a direct 'One of a Kind' mixed media sculpture art doll of the infamous Houdini!
Only one was made, and is entirely hand-crafted from scratch. He stands about 12 inches, but was designed to be in this sitting pose. However, his entire body and legs can be gently posed and adjusted, but obviously, his arm movements are more restricted due to his permanent straitjacket.
Entirely hand-sculpted, completely costumed from scratch. His straitjacket is made of real leather and was designed to resemble the ones he used. He also wears ankle cuffs, (complete with tiny locks) and sits on a handmade wooden shipping crate, to resemble his great outdoor escapes.
He also comes with a miniature promo poster that I designed, including a tiny stand, to accompany him.
To see more of my past figures, please feel free to visit my website (you can Google me!) where you will find dolls from the year 1999 to the present.
Thank you for looking and take care!
