Things Out of Time Created by Artist Mariya Aitkaliyeva

Mariya Aitkaliyeva of Things Out of Time is a mixed media artist from Kazakhstan. She creates unusual and unique soft sculptures using fabric, tree branches, papier mache, and beads.

The dolls are constructed entirely by hand, stitched and painted by the artist. Her work is not cutesy in the conventional sense of the word but they are still absolutely adorable, they won my heart the moment I set my eyes on them. The sculptures are made with amazing details show casing the artist's craftsmanship and her love for the craft. These creatures seem to be from cabinet of curiosities that will be cherished for generations to come.
