He is, of course, a 38cm porcelain man by the incredibly talented Elena Reiner
Having admired Elena's dolls for a while now, I finally felt compelled to ask her to make me a little man, and I am thrilled to bits with him.
I love the sculpt, his facial contours are so realistic, and his eyes give the illusion of moving to look at me.
His porcelain is a good heavy weight, comfortable to hold in the hand, he feels solid. His posing is superb, and he holds a pose well.
Elena was wonderful to work with, frequent friendly emails with lots of progress photos, ordering from her was a pleasure from start to finish. Her dolls are high quality, her handmade wigs are beautiful and soft, and fit perfectly. And I love his clothing too.
And now I am going back into the garden to see what he is doing .... I may be out there rather a long time, LOL !!!

Thank you Dina. He is more impressive in real life than his photos can show.
Anastasiya, I just LOVE this little guy. If the weather improves I will take more photos. I love the way each of Elena's porcelain men are so different, even with the same headmolds. Each one has his own personality. My sweet guy is gentle and thoughtful. Your amazing Ely is strong and dynamic!
