A tragic character, full of passion for life, love, and country - who found her dream, of becoming queen, is very far from the life she wished for herself. A free spirit, she found it hard to adjust to the strict protocol of court and lived a troubled life full of losses, tragedies, and melancholy. She was clinically depressed (as most of Wittelsbach family at her time), and probably anorectic as well. As blackness grew nearer and nearer, she spent more and more of her time traveling and kept away from her family and court.
Having found her pictures (including photographs) online, I was struck with her great beauty. Dark piercing eyes, extremely long hair (which was her great pride, along with her amazingly narrow waist line). I found her gaze haunting, and was sad to find out there is only one official portrait of her smiling out of the hundreds taken. I decided I want to make a Flutterbutt inspired by one of her early portraits. Hoping the free spirit of the art doll will encourage her to give a little happy smile to the camera. I wish I could somehow reach my hand throughout the years that passed, and tell her how much she is still loved, admired, and mostly - that she will never be forgotten.
And here she is, my little Sisi. I hope she will find a good home with someone who loves Sisi as much as I do.
