Noush Projects - Salome Mermaid on Block

By Noush


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.

Salome is the only Noush piece who can be found sitting on a block and one of a three styles than is a mermaid. The weight and style of this pieces means it can not only stand beautifully on its own, but if paired with another, can become back to back bookends. 

Our Salome mermaids are available in all black with a gold tail or all white with a gold tail.

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.
