I buried a doll in sand today. Then I dug her up, pretending that I was finding a precious, lost relic.

This photo shoot was for a project Iíll tell you about later. I would never do this with a resin doll, but porcelain doesnít get stained by dirt or scratched by the soil particles, so it was relatively safe. However, I was a little concerned about it getting inside the spring mechanism and between the joints, so I chose to bury her in sand as opposed to soil, because the grains are larger and can be vacuumed out once they dry. I was able to brush most of the sand off her skin pretty easily, but she still needs a wipe down and a vacuum. She sounds worse than she looks, because her joints grate with the sand stuck between them. But sheíll be alright. It was a fun experiment.

It looks as though you found a magical fairy-tale like creature in the ground. Wonderful.
