drawing challenge

paper doll / drama

Probably my first paper doll (guess I did some when I was a child).
What could be more dramatic for a paper doll than fire?
It is a drawing with ink on paper with a little piece of wire at its back to hang it up.
I d´ont know why but it wanted to be in an old suitcase.

Please have a look at our hostess Norma for some other paper dolls - enjoy your weekend!


  1. see, this probably is the symbolism that popped up in my head too... we make associations that we're none too sure off why or how, and we act upon it.
    she is going to be burned up?
    i think i am also intrigued by her third leg? is it?
    you have a SUNNY weekend too, now!

  2. i like the drama you put in your photos and the association paper doll drama and fire but instead of getting burned there might be the possibility she takes off just like an air balloon, no? xx

  3. Hi, Stefanie, your genius has impacted me, really, the simplicity of your paper doll has become something so dramatic, the color of the flame has created an atmosphere terrible but overwhelming. what you say about that nothing can be more dramatic than the fire for her, is true
    I loved it and I congratulate you.

  4. Loving your paper doll within such a fab environment. Annette x

  5. Stefanie this is a powerful piece. Just a really brilliant installation. Love the setting...the suitcase...the lit candle...drama at its' best in my opinion. I really love this work art-friend!!

    p.s. she may be a fire walker; she is aware of the fire element and we all have fire tickling at our heels but most of us are not aware of it...or we don't slow down long enough to feel it. This little archetype paper doll is a symbol of strength. Should the hanger burst, she is light enough to waft up to safety due to the heat waves travelling upwards. I love your work.

  6. What a performance,
    dear Stefanie!
    I have many images in my head looking at your pictures, for example:
    burning of a witch (the third leg is her misfortune)
    circus with attraction of artistic flying woman with the three legs (its her fortune)

    Wünsche Dir ein schönes Pfingstwochenende,

  7. I love how you put her in a suitcase, great job.

  8. nice images and a wonderful setting for your paper doll very dramatic. Looks all mystical and carnivale.
    Very nice

    Helen :)

  9. wow!
    drama it is!!
    the suitcase fits perfect
    great scenery
    and like Nadine I wonder about
    that third leg...


  10. oh nein, nicht brennen! sie ist zu schön, zu zart. wer kann sie noch retten?

    sonnige pfingstgrüße, mano
