Rocking the Boat is a One of A Kind doll art creation by the much celebrated doll artist Nancy Wiley. This piece is a Paperclay, Mixed Media doll which stands approximately 27.5 inches tall. . . if she stands straight! This doll actually does rock left and right! The base is a crescent shape which allows Rocking the Boat to actually rock! The ever more creative Nancy Wiley has made this doll-sculpture into an allegorical statement, and that is one of the ways a doll becomes a piece of art. She has, of course, applied her technique of oil painting her dolls after she has applied gesso to the surface so that the paint texture reveals the brush strokes for a very particular expressive achievement in her work. She has taken her inspiration too from the Baroque style of European dress, and the inner court fascination with ships and engaging in fantastic games with toy ships.

Nancy Wiley is among the best of a number of contemporary doll artists who have brought their fine art training, discipline and creativity to their doll making such as to give their doll art the status of fine art. Her dolls are three-dimensional oil paintings. The painting extends to the costumes, which become an integral extension of the sculpture. And her pieces are allegory in doll form.
