“Strega” is a portrait of legendary Italian actress Sofia Loren, as a sexy witch. The figure is painted in acrylic and is surrounded by authentic copper leaf. In alchemy, Wicca and many ancient cultures, copper is the element that represents love and lust, as well as femminine beauty and artistic creativity.

We are proud and excited to show her work here at Dollhaus II for the first time since we started here.

Wander into the forest of The Dollhaus II and behold the Hybrid Witchcraft.
A HYBRID IS A COMBINATION BETWEEN TWO SPECIES, BORN FROM THE UNION OF THOSE TWO. A SURGO-WITCH HYBRID IS A SUPERNATURAL CROSSBREED BETWEEN A PURE WITCH AND A SURGO WITCH. HYBRIDS POSSESS THE ABILITIES OF WITCHES AND SURGOS AS WELL AS THEIR WEAKNESSES. THEY ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN REGULAR SURGOS, BUT ARE SAID TO BE WEAKER THAN WITCHES DUE TO THEIR SURGO HALF WITHHOLDING THEM BACK, SUCH AS THEIR INABILITY TO PRACTICE FULL EARTH MAGIC. DESPITE THIS, MANY HYBRIDS HAVE SPECIAL, UNIQUE ABILITIES NOT MANIFESTED BY PURE WITCHES.
