No. 1 of a limited edition of only 7, Emilia is an art doll by doll artist Juanita Montoya for Juanita F. Montoya Orig. Emilia is made of porcelain, with soft posable body. The head, breastplate, arms to the elbows and legs to the knees are porcelain. Her head is socketed and can swivel. Her eyes are a lovely deep brown blown glass prosthetic quality, and her lashes are inset. She has a human hair wig of beautiful long red/auburn waves. This doll is approximately 36 inches, larger dolls being the artist's preference as they afford such a great deal of detail. The same level of detail is given to the costuming, where the artist's many years of sewing and fabric and needlework is evident. Emilia is dressed in rich emerald velvet, lace, chiffon and tulle, and has intricate beaded aplique front and back of the bodice. Her ears are pierced and she wears antique style emerald color hanging earrings.

Juanita Montoya, as a little girl growing up in Barcelona, Spain, chose a porcelain baby doll over a bicycle, and this began her love affair with dolls and doll-making. Her daily life in Spain included spending many hours sewing, embroidering, crocheting, knitting and doing other types of needlework, all which helped prepare her skills in doll making. At 14 years of age she moved to Peru, where she met her husband. Ultimately the two moved to the United States, where Juanita learned to paint and use a kiln, to make reproduction dolls, and ultimately to sculpt her own pieces. Largely self taught, she completed her fist original sculpture, Fiorella, in 1987, which won "Best of Class" at the 1988 International Doll Association Convention in Indianapolis. This artist has produced dolls of various ethnicities, and also has worked collaboratively with her daughter, Monica Montoya O'Brien.
