…carry my pain on the right…
I guess I’m a bit of a Bjork fan. By that I mean I don’t own ALL of her albums, but I do have a hard-to-find VHS tape of her first movie “The Juniper Tree” and I used to knob up my hair during my art school days. Here’s a shout out to the kookiest girl in the world:
Bjork’s fabulous bell dress from her “Who Is It” video had me collecting about a million beads and sewing them together to create a miniature version. It’s not as spectacular as Alexander McQueen’s original creation, but I’m pretty pleased with the result…especially since I did it while watching “Bret Michael’s Rock of Love (season one)” marathon and was feeling a little dirty the whole time.
This one is from Bjork’s “Wanderlust” video. Did anyone see it in 3-D? Her videos are like weird little Michael Gondry movies, aren’t they?…especially ones directed by Michael Gondry.
I was originally going to paint the smallest Bjork in her infamous swan dress, but at the last minute I went with a “classic Bjork.” Nobody can pull off hair knobs quite as coolly as her in “Venus as a Boy.”
I had such a blast doing this set that I’ve already got another idea for a trio of Bjorks in the near future!

are these for sale?
i’ve just rediscovered bjork’s music. love singing her songs. her voice is so crisp & full! love your creations in homage to bjork & how they are pigeon-toed, seems to reflect her innocence & unassuming character.
oh my, these are plain wonderful!!

AMAZING! I love BJORK and these dolls are just another outburst of contagious creativity. Kate Bush, Grace Jones and BJORK are the “3 Witches of Pop”. If only the world could be a competition of creativity instead of religion, economics and political power………then it could be heaven on earth.
alleluia to that thomas!! but i’d make it a coven of witches & add annie lennox, florence welsh & ane brun to the mix!
these are beautiful!! 🙂
I want one!

These are gorgeous. I too had the hair “knobs” as you call them during art school and an orange dress just like the one she wore in “It’s Oh So Quiet”. She is a treasure and your dolls are equally precious. I’m packing up and moving apartment soon but when I am settled I will be perusing your Etsy store for some apartment warming dolls 🙂 Keep up the lovely work!
take my money now

Very cute! But babushka means grandma and has nothing to do with nesting dolls at all. its a very common misconception but if u say babushka to a russian they will have no idea you mean dolls.
Yes, it’s true. My grandmother is Russian so I named my shop after her and also my dog (Bo). You have to admit that BoBo Matryoshka doesn’t really have the same zing.
