Marina Bychkova & Enchanted Dolls

“When I needed to come up with brand name to give my dolls an identity, I decided to name them after Paul Gallico’s fictional, short story called “Enchanted Doll”, where a young woman creates dolls with so much love that they enchant people at first sight with their compelling, delicate, life-like beauty.”

I am enchanted! What about you?

Here are my favorites:

Surviving 2011

A porcelain tribute to breast cancer fighters and the choices they face.

In the growing awareness of Breast Cancer, a disease which appears to be the inevitable side-effect of womanhood (though males can also develop it, but a lot less frequently), this doll was my attempt at working through my own personal fear of it, and facing up to the possibility that one day I could be amongst hundreds of thousands of women who develop it. I can only hope to be brave, like so many other women.

Anna Karenina Survives The Train. 2010

This doll is based on the main protagonist from the majestic and tragic novel Anna Karenina written by Leo Tolstoy. I tried to re-imagine Anna’s heartbreaking love story with a different ending where she survives her horrific suicide attempt at jumping under a slow-moving train, but sustains severe, disfiguring injuries, losing her left leg, mangling her left arm and breaking her back instead. read more…

Bride of Frankenstein


This project was inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, while the helmet in particular was inspired the Steampunk culture, as well as Camelia D’Errico’s and James Christensen’s work. The bridal gown is rendered in the style of Erte.

The Muse of Art Nouveau


A Muse is an ancient goddess of inspiration and creativity. She is a personification of humanity’s relentless pursuit of beauty and self-expression.
