In literature, Morgan le Fay is known by quite a few alternative names, one of which is Morgana. She is a powerful enchantress in the Arthurian legend. Her role has changed over time from healer to goddess to sorceress and witch. Her name appears as far back as 1150 CE.
|Morgan le Fay by Anthony Frederick Sandys (1864)|
She is the first doll to be released with the Demetae sculpt. The Demetae were a Celtic people of Iron Age Britain. Alexandra Forbes names her sculpts after early British tribes.
Morgana is dressed in a long, deep-wine colored skirt. It is fitted through her hips and fans out with a very broad sweep. The upper part of her fashion is pewter colored flexible resin. It ties in the back corset style.
Her wig is amazing. Perhaps photos can better describe this crowning glory.
The colors used are a blend of silver gray and platinum with either very dark gray or black. (Ed. note: I've been told there's a touch of blue in there as well.) The fibers are crimped. There are a few tiny braids and one big braid falling from the top.
I have Morgana wearing one of her pairs of alternate hands...the one with dragon lady nails.
She cast a spell on me right from the start.
