Description
Inscriptions/Signature

The female figure is wearing a dark pink fringed dress. She has a plastic head with short red-blonde hair, and a rubber body. Her dark pink dress is covered with relatively long fringe and has a bar of cut glass stones across the top. Her strappy gold shoes are removeable.

The black control strings are attached at a variety of points to a red wood controller.
