Potnia Theron

Head Sculpt:
Sei-Tenshi C
Pureskin Normal
Sei-Tenshi with straight pink wings
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Date of acquisition:
    30 Mar 2017
    Gift from VolksUSA as I was the very last person to place an FCS order at the LA Sumika.
    Somewhere in the Volks HQ archive lurks a blackmail-worthy photo of me crying and holding this tiny doll.
    Reason for choice:
    Sei-Tenshi choose you, as the saying goes.
    Best Points:
    Just so happens that Head Sculpt C is the only Sei-Tenshi face that I like!
    Worst Points:
    Wrist hooks are cast into the wrist balls, so her hands can only twist not flex.
    Sei-Tenshi are a small type of Dollfie that is not available for purchase. Volks gives them as gifts at special events, usually by lottery or in some type of game. They have limited jointing, fixed wings in a variety of colors and poses, and an assortment of face sculpts.
    At Tenshi no Sato, Sei-Tenshi are displayed flying as though they are cherubs fluttering around the statue of MotherSD where omukae ceremonies are held. This doesn't really add to the supposed gravitas of the event.
  • Eyes:
    Oscars Mirror, Dark Jade Green, 14mm
    Favourite colours:
    sea green
    Fashion style(s):
    Bronze Age Mediterranean
    Key fashion accessory:
    Multi-layer bead necklace
    I made everything myself because that's the only way to clothe a sei.
  • Name story:
    Potnia was the Linear B name for the primary female Mycenean deity, whose iconography appears to date from earlier Minoan times. First mention of Potnia Theron by name comes from Homer.
    I don't collect tiny dolls and there wasn't any way to integrate her into our story, so I decided to indulge my love of Bronze Age archaeology and turn her into a pocket goddess. Her stiff little arms and wings made me think of depictions of Potnia and Archaic images of Artemis.
    Character age:
    Character gender:
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    She's good with nets and dogs. Not so good with men. In fact, you can keep the men, just give her all of the dogs. Or griffins. Griffins are good too.
