Abandoned

(at the Arkham Asylum)

Original size 8.5x11 2016 Alex Ledante

This piece is oddly moving; for some reason the doll seems more forlorn than a person would be in the same position. I expect this is because we intuitively understand that a person could simply leave of their own accord while the abandoned doll is doomed to remain there until her heartless owner returns to redeem her or she crumbles to dust...
