The Origins of Wax-Modeling

“ Begin at the beginning,’ the King said gravely, ‘and go on till you come to the end:
then stop.” (Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll)

Alice, as a child of her age, would no doubt have been aware of Victorian wax dolls. She lived in the heyday of the craft, the middle 19th century.


  1. I love Alice in wonderland since I was a child. I love everything about her. Ya sean dibujos, fotos, muñecas or films.

    And I love your music too! Son parte de mis temas favoritos de música cásica. Precioso.

  2. No consigo recordar de quien es la pieza nº 6(unkown) de tu Playlist. Me vuelve loco cuando entra la orquesta! Y ese piano... so romantic! Se que lo tengo en algún CD. Tengo una memoria terrible.
