the background of the doll that scandalized her country
Katherine amelia She is the eldest of the three daughters of Maximum Zorreguieta and of William, the kings of Holland. In her country she is called much more by her second name than by her first, she is very popular among inhabitants of all social classes, she is 16 years old and two years ago she had already been the victim of an attack of fatphobia, like today.
At that time, a Russian artist, Elena Timkaevadesigned a doll for an exhibition that was going to take place in Holland the Art Dolls Expo. It was based on amelia but the only thing he achieved was to unite the Dutch in a strong repudiation of his work and some of the methods he used to carry out the task.
THE DOLL OF A RUSSIAN ARTIST OUTRAGED THE DUTCH.
Social networks were the space where tens of thousands of Dutch expressed their rejection of the doll, asked the authorities not to allow its exhibition, and also showed their support and affection for the princess, whom they definitely adore.
For all of them, Timkaeva had done nothing but make a caricature of their body of amelia, exaggerating his physique and neglecting other aspects. For several days, the theme occupied the center of the scene in that country and toured much of Europe, a continent that still maintains a monarchical tradition in many countries
THE SPANISH MEDIA ECHOED THE CONTROVERSY
To top, Timkaeva rehearsed a defense that instead of making things better, made them worse. He first said that “It took me two months to complete all the work to do the best Amalia“, something that angered the Dutch, who have repeatedly expressed their preference for the eldest of the princesses.
On top of that, the artist said that for the hair of the amelia “I used llama hair“, a definition that added to the repudiation of the animal protectionist entities, of great penetration in those latitudes.

What ended up completing the criticism was the value established to auction the doll, whose proceeds were going to be used for charitable works of the foundation “Make a Wish”: the base was 1,500 euros, another fact that generated controversy and endless negative expressions for work.
Today, in Argentina, what generated a significant demonstration against was a title that speaks of a “plus-size” body. Fatphobia, neither more nor less.
