Christa Canzio

German artist Christa Canzio has always had a big interest in ethnic cultures which is reflected in her doll making. As she married a very nice Italian man she acquired the beautiful name of Canzio.
Christa Canzio takes pride in working with high quality porcelain and is using extraordinary fabrics and other materials in a very professional way. She finishes her dolls to a very high standard.

In creating her dolls she takes the opportunity to combine her life long love for beautiful fabrics and matching colours with her love for ethnic dolls.




Please note these dolls have been especially created for collectors and are not suitable as a toy for children

Malani

Malani represents a Beduin girl from the north of Africa. She is dressed in the clothes of her tribe. The ornaments she wears are in part original and made of real silver.

Her porcelain hands and feet are decorated with original handpainted motives.
Her head, which is beautifully jointed under her chin, underarms and legs from the knee down are made of the finest porcelain.
She has a black wig made of real human hair and brown crystal glass eyes.
Christa Canzio gave her a cloth body that has a wire armature so that it is flexible. Malani has a beautiful expression with her large black real eyelashes and slightly open mouth.

She is dressed in black trousers with hand dyed  terracotta coloured silk decoration and she wears a hand dyed terracotta coloured silk top. Her lower legs are covered with terracotta striped antique silk brocade. She has a large cape from the same material.
Around her arms she wears terracotta striped silk bands decorated with silver ornamants and orange-red beads.

Her jewelry is made of extremely nice silver, glass beads and earthenware beads.
In her hair she has a leather band decorated with antique embroidery.
