Barbie gets mummified in silver

E.V. Day, the Brooklyn based artist has taken dress-up-your –Barbie to a whole new level. She has given Barbie a mummified look. The materials made to wrap the doll include beeswax, twine, and silver flake. We don’t really know what Day was going for over here, but it reminds us of an exotic woman in a burka and someone who has been swaddled like a baby. Whatever feel you get, we are sure some feminists may not be very receptive to the image portrayed by a female figure in bondage. But, before rushing out to buy this Barbie to add on to your collection, make sure to check up on its retail value. Produced in limited edition of 9, it is listed at $3,500.
