Baby Mandrake Dolls

Cristóbal Graciá, an artist in Spain, makes watercolor paintings, props and sculptures. The latter category is the most interesting. He makes baby anthropomorphic versions of plants, such as these mandrake roots. They’re made of polymer clay, artificial leaves and glass balls for the eyes.

Mandrake root can be turned into a mild hallucinogen and the roots vaguely resemble human bodies. That’s why Mr. Graciá’s dolls come with a warning: the scream of an adult mandrake is similar to that of a banshee.  When it’s pulled out of the ground, the scream can kill a human being. The scream of a baby mandrake can knock a human unconscious.
