The present piece by Yoshitomo Nara features the artist's archetypal motif of an anime-inspired little girl. The plush doll shows a scowling girl in a baby blue dress and knitted beanie. The babydoll dress carries connotations of childlike innocence which clashes in opposition to the menacing facial expression depicted on the doll. Much like Nara's oeuvre as a whole, this work speaks to the artist's interest in creating works which speak to the sweetness of childhood in conjunction with playful rebellion and mischief.

Yoshitomo Nara (Japanese, b. 1959) lives and works in Tokyo. His work draws on his childhood experiences of spending time alone with only his imagination, comic books, and family pets. As a result, much of his work includes images of seemingly innocent, wide-eyed and comic book-like children and dogs. His nightmarish graphics, for which he has gained an international cult following, are simultaneously vulnerable and provocative, and stand as a critical affront to the rigidness of certain aspects of Japan’s social conventions.
