Michelangelo’s David Is Now A Bendable Action Figure… And It’s Not Weird At All.
The iconic statues of Michelangelo’s David, Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker, and Venus de Milo are finally getting the chance to stretch their limbs. Well, at least their smaller versions. A Japanese manufacturer FREEing, has re-created the classical structures into moveable action figures.
The toy versions are a great way to introduce art to younger generations. The 6-inch-tall figures each come with their own additional quirks. The Venus de Milo posable doll comes with removable arms to resemble the original model. David has shifting eyeballs, and The Thinker comes in the original bronze as well as the more subdued ivory color.
The Good Company Smile is giving art enthusiasts an opportunity to reserve their own figurines in time for their release in the spring of 2016.
The classics like you have never seen them before.
Michelangelo's David sculpture measures 5.17 meters in height. The smaller version is 6-inches tall.
Not something you see in the original: shifting eyes.
The ancient sculpture Venus de Milo is believed to represent Aphrodite: the Greek goddess of love and beauty.
The new version has bendable and moveable limbs.
The Thinker by Auguste Rodin comes with its sitting rock.
But this model can stand up and pose which ever way it wants.
The toys are made out of polyvinyl chloride.
An unusual pairing.
Look what happened when these classics were turned into hipsters.
