Little Apple Dolls Series 3

Updated on December 31, 2010

Little Apple Dolls Series 3 - Sanem, Oneris, Triginita Tres, Vates and Mystery Doll Atrum

Welcome to the In-between! Little Apple Dolls are unusual and haunting dolls with partially formed faces, created by artist Ufuoma Urie. They are the lost souls of children wandering the place between worlds, neither living nor dead, finding a haven in the In-between.

First released in 2004, the dolls have become a cult hit with collectors, and the third series presented the largest collection yet - the four dolls Sanem, Oneris, Triginita Tres and Vates, along with a mystery doll which emerged as the very first Little Apple Doll boy, Atrum.

This lens looks at the five dolls and where collectors can find them.

Little Apple Dolls Series 3 - Sanem

All we know of the frail, elf-like Sanem is that she lived in the Blood Tree and sang the most beautiful, bewitching song; so much so that people would be drawn to her like moths to a flame, until they got near enough that the ground by the tree would open up and swallow them... such was the feeding of the Blood Tree.

To know more of Sanem's strange story, you will have to add her to your collection!

Little Apple Dolls Series 3 - Oneris

One can catch a glimpse of the In-between in the Wandering Wood, where Kook, Charles and Little Apple Red often venture. Here you may spy the Wax Carver, who lives here among the Cypress trees. Also known as Oneris, glimpsing beneath her veil to see her face would reveal a beauty that pleases few but disturbs many. She makes black candles for the lost souls of wanderers and roaming warriors, which follow her about; lights for the living lost.

Little Apple Dolls Series 3 - Triginita Tres

All that is known of Triginita Tres is that she is connected to the Miko, mighty sorceresses whose power came from their surroundings, such as mountain stone or stormy sea. Some were noble women communing with spirits and goddesses who often would possess them. But as some reached into the Great Beyond, it could not always be known who they were talking to, for there were things mortals could not begin to imagine, in the darkness....

To know the story of Triginita Tres, you will have to find the box within which she dwells...

Little Apple Dolls Series 3 - Vates

The Little Apple Dolls site currently has no information on Vates, so you will have to explore her story for yourself if you add her to your collection!

She looks intriguing, however, with black hand prints all over the skirt of her dress, all up her legs and one on her arm. Another dark-haired bewitching beauty!

Little Apple Dolls Series 3 - Mystery Doll

When Series 3 was announced for release, one of the dolls was described only as a "mystery doll". He has since emerged as the very first (and only) boy in the collection, Atrum. The story tells of a trickster boy whose music was binding to those who heard it, drawing minds and bodies into its deadly haunt. Mischievous, Atrum goes treasure hunting, and likes doing so between All Hallows and November best of all.

Atrum is quite a dark doll, with a deathly white face and dressed in a black hooded suit with a skeleton on the front. He is roughly half the size of the other dolls.

      I love the lens, and the dolls are just too awesome! Just feel bad that the artist isn't getting the money from the crazy prices they are going for!

      Interesting, my first encounter with Little Apple Dolls. I like the fact that each one has her own story to tell. Blessed by a Squid Angel.

      My dear, I had not ever heard of the Little Apple Dolls ... they are interesting and really quite charming! I love them all ... well, except for the mystery doll ... I'm not really much into mysteries these days, but still quite enchanting.

      Interesting read. Perhaps these unusual dolls will be of interest to my child when she is a little older to appreciate them. Many thanks

      My mother had a friend who would make apple dolls, her husband would make dollhouses for them to live in. I think they enjoyed it because it was something they could do together. They use to go to exhibits and were often complimented on their work. Thanks for the lens.
