I have an obsession for miniature figures (mannequins, busts, furniture). So, I’ve recently started a miniature collection of miniature famous people, including the vinyl characters from the “Little Giants” by Alphie Northcote collection produced by the Jailbreak.collective. Size matters
My favorites are: Mao – so cute, so small, such a large forehead; Darwin – his devolution is the fittest; Frida Khalo – her mini-mustache makes all the difference.
In the litt’l boxes in which these figures come are a few factoids. For Frida:
One of her favorite hobbies was boxing.
55 of her 143 paintings are self-portaits.
Frida’s work was greatly influenced by her infertility, the result of a terrible bus accident in which she was impailed on an iron handrail that pierced her uterus.
These are not kids toys, to be sure.
