Alpha-Phi 21 / Dec 2021 edition

This unique bell-shaped female doll inspired by 7th century archaic prototypes from Boeotia is bearing similar painted decoration. The bell-shaped body is wheel thrown and shaped to an ellipse. The neck, head and hands are then connected to the body. The decoration is based on the use clay slips that acquire their colour with firing. The legs are made separately and are attached after firing with linen or leather strips. Finally every doll is decorated with polychrome threads of wool, decorated ceramic beads or
faience beads, thus becoming unique. The bell shaped dolls in our collection
are numbered in groups of 50 (AI-A50, Bl-Β50, ...).

The Dec 2021 edition was designed to celebrate the 12 years of production of our bell shaped dolls starting in May 2009 when they were fist sold at the shop of the new Acropolis Museum and became its best selling item.
