Meat-Dressed Porcelain Dolls
Mark Ryden’s Porcelain Meat Dress Revives One of His Paintings

By: Jen Chae (Star) May 27, 13

This porcelain doll is a little creepier than the usual; Porcelain Meat Dress by Mark Ryden, which will be featured at the Art Basel Hong Kong this month, shows off an extravagant raw meat dress.

The 23-inch-tall sculpture has intricately crafted sausages, animal limbs and boneless meats drooping off a baby-faced girl’s dress. The doll’s face alone resembles that of a Bratz doll, which shows Ryden’s pop-culture influence. However, the dress contrasts the doll in an eerie way.

Mark Ryden is a renowned American artist specializing in the Pop Surrealist movement. This specific porcelain doll is a continuation of his previous works with meat dresses; in one of his series called ‘Incarnation’ he painted young doll-like girls wearing raw meat in gloomy atmospheres.
