Figma: Fancy Edition - Venus de Milo & The Thinker


Figma's Table Museum, a new line for erudite collectors of the highest pedigree... aw who are we kidding, this is an awesome idea! Why this never came sooner is beyond our ken!


FIGMA - THE TABLE MUSEUM: VENUS DE MILO

Manufacturer: FREEing - Good Smile Company
Series: Figma - The Table Museum
Specs: PVC & ABS Non Scale Pre-Painted Articulated Figure with stand
Height: approx. 155mm
Release: Jan, 2016

Influencing many masters of modern and traditional art, the iconic Venus de Milo aka Aphrodite of Milos is the second figma to join "The Table Museum" line!

From a description on it's plinth, this alleged marble depiction of the goddess of beauty, love, pleasure, and procreation is thought to be convinced by Alexandros of Antioch sometime between 130BC to 100 BC. Today this masterpiece can be seen at the Louvre, and millions of admirers are drawn to her graceful beauty as well as the intrigue inspired by her signature missing arms.

In this figma, the mystery is partially solved as Venus de Milo comes packaged with her lost arms which can be attached for a series of somber or hilarious poses! As well, her Praxitelean drapery comes to life with the soft plastic material allowing for full and free movement and articulation. Finally, with artistic liberties, included is a representation of the distracting golden apples of Greek mythology, the perfect accessory for a deity of such charms.

FIGMA - THE TABLE MUSEUM: THE THINKER PLASTER VER.

Manufacturer: FREEing - Good Smile Company
Series: Figma - The Table Museum
Specs: PVC & ABS Non Scale Pre-Painted Articulated Figure with stand
Height: approx. 155mm
Release: Jan, 2016

A plaster re-skin of the first of Figma's new "The Table Museum" line-up - where famous sculptures and artworks come alive in articulated form, Auguste Rodin's 'The Thinker' aka Le Penseur takes center stage continuing his pondering!

Originally the centerpiece for a sculptural work called 'The Gates of Hell' which was based on Datne's The Divine Comedy, this bronze sculpture is one of the most recognizable sculptures in the world. 

Like any figma, a flexible plastic is used for where the joints connect, so that proportions retain authenticity; the Thinker can be posed in any form you like, whether it be the silent, ponderous pose seen in real life, or a multitude of hilarious or strange poses too! As well, The Thinker also comes with a selection of head and hand parts and is also anatomically correct. Plus, there are two stands - one articulated and one is the 'stone' base!
