Exquisitely crafted sculptural African 'Doll' of hand-painted cast resin. 

Noush Projects is small bespoke artisan studio located in Durban, South Africa owned and operated by Dutch artist, Manoushka Kraal.  The inspiration for the Noush Dolls came from the iconic 1950's West African Clonette Dolls. Many considered them little angels that would look out for your loved ones and guide them through life.  Noush Dolls were created in that same spirit.

While each and every Noush Doll is truly exquisite and unique, none quite matches Octopus girl in its uniqueness in that it is hard to tell if she has control of the octopus or the octopus her.  We love that the gold octopus is elegantly draped over her head and spills down over her all black body.

Like Butterfly Girl, Octopus girl was designed to perch on the edge of a shelf or surface rather than stand.

Each Noush Doll comes with a certificate of authenticity stating the name and production date.

As Noush Dolls are painted and finished by hand, it is possible for them to be ordered in a variety of different styles. If you are interested in customizing piece, please contact us for details.
