Michael Zajkov Creates Stunningly Realistic Dolls That Appear to Be Living

Michael Zajkov is a Moscow-based artist who creates such hyper-realistic dolls that often they make people feel uncomfortable! Unlike other dolls out there, Michael Zajkov’s dolls are hand-sculpted and are a fine work of art. These dolls are made from a special type of modeling clay, with beautiful glass eyes, French mohair wigs and numerous joints in them.

Zajkov graduated from Kuban State University of Russia in 2009. From 2010 to 2013 he worked at a puppet theatre while also attending a graduate school. He made his first doll in 2010.
