Gary Birch dolls are an art form which not widely recognized though once introduced most viewers are immediately captivated. The work is tight and securely executed using sound precise construction. The poker face expression is difficult to interpret though one continuously makes attempts. I have owned this one 20 years and have never come to a conclusion. Monogram signature GB and dated 95 . I am always interested in the purchase of Birch dolls or his sheet metal fish.
