THE PORCELAIN MUÏO-BIX, Winter 1995-96
SW JAPAN Exclusive Limited Editions

BillyBoy* created three young men dolls in 1994: Muio-Bix, brother to Mdvanii and Edie, Jobii, brother to Dheei and Tzulli, and Ishwar, brother to Soraya and Ouimi. The three young men had the same skin color as their sisters.

Muïo--Bix was introduced first, in 1995-96 in several limited edition series, exclusive to Sumiko Watanabe. The dolls had sculpted-on ceramic hair - from very short “rapper” styles to medium length looks. Most of them had blue eyes and either brown or red hair and they all had a pierced ear. The dolls are hand painted.

Different from the stylized early Mdvanii sculpts, Muïo-Bix presents a more specific vision of male beauty. The face sculpt is generous with details and boasts self-assured noses, full lips, and chiseled cheekbones. The body sculpt is a graceful and realistic representation of an athletic body with well-defined pectoral and abdominal muscles.

The dolls are made of six pieces of porcelain de Sèvres strung together to provide smooth and graceful articulation. They are 10-inches tall and are engraved “BillyBoy*-Déposé 94” on their left buttock. They also have a “BillyBoy*-Surreal Bijoux” gold tag implanted in the middle of their backs, between the shoulder plates. Like the other dolls, Muïo-Bix is anatomically defined. Muïo-Bix practices safer sex and for this reason, the dolls come with a condom in their box.

  1. Very interesting. I did not know that Muïo-Bix comes with a little condom for safer sex in box. Do you have a picture of the detail? I have never seen a doll's one.
