After consuming 30,000 inches of paper, 4.5 kilograms of glue and 3,435 hours crafting the 1,145 handmade paper dolls, paper artist’s Amnah Al Fard made it to be included at the prestigious Guinness World Records.
After 2 years of hard work, the Umm Al Quwain Emirati Artist sets the record having the largest display of handmade paper dolls at a single venue. The exhibition and display of the 1,145 paper dolls was made in Sharjah’s Maraya Art Centre last July 7.
The armies of dolls with 2-3 inches in height and are totally made of papers were processed using “Quilling” , an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together.
“This record is for the largest display of handmade paper dolls at a single venue. For the purpose of this record, a doll is described as a model of a human being, often used as a toy for children made only from paper. Each doll is three-dimensional, made from paper as part of a display,” Guinness World Records, MENA Region Country Manager says.
Presently, Amnah is competing in a quilling contest abroad and says on a press release that she’s glad as an Umm Al Quwain Citizen and her craft in paper quilling is the first of its kind around the world being included in the Guinness World of Record
Amnah says that one doll approximately took three hours to complete and one whole day to dry.
