He's Mozart. I figured that, but he also had a hand written tag pinned to his to coat by his previous owner.
He's 8" tall.
|That's not a bald spot. That's just the way his hair is laying.|
He says Sweetheart on his back.
|His head has this symbol.|
Let's just call them Wolfie's Angels.
They're also 8" tall, and use the exact same body and head sculpt as Wolfgang.
They aren't dressed in the same era's costumes as Mozart though.Their dresses are too short.
Several of them, including Wolfgang, have strange orangy stuff around their necks.
What is this stuff? Are their necks disintegrating? Was there some kind of rubber ring in there?
When I was taking these photos I couldn't help constantly thinking of a sketch by Peter Cook and Dudley Moore from their TV show, "Not Only But Also". It was a parody of the show "This Is Tom Jones", called "This Is Ludwig Von Beethoven".
|This is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart!|
Dudley Moore as Beethoven hosted a variety show with guests like Wordsworth reciting poetry while accompanied by dancers dressed as giant daffodils. If you want to watch it you can see it HERE.
Unfortunately the part where Beethoven sings "It's Not Unusual" doesn't seem to be on YouTube,and I can't even find a photo. Trust me though,it's great.
That's all for today. See you tomorrow for another doll. I've been digging deep lately. You never know what I'll find.
