For the coming “Choking Hazard: An Exhibition about Toys” group art show - launching today Friday Feb 17th @ Kult Gallery (@ Emily Hill, Blk C2-5, 11 Upper Wilkie Rd, Singapore 228120) - local resin slinger extraordinaire Daniel Yu has sculpted up brand new JIANGSHI ACOLYTES, with an elongated “body” - seen above, flanking the ”usual” Jiangshi (think classic “Kenner” or Super7’s “ReAction” action figures), with the result in two editions: Regular Painted, and GID / Glow-in-the-Dark!
I love that the painted version has his own “coat” too! Very “Star Wars”-esque hahahaha
Articulation is via magnets in the shoulder/arms (seen in video clip below), and as well the “new” Jiangshi sports a pigtail / “Queue”, to give it that classic period dynasty-feel!
Sculpted by, hand-casted and hand-painted by Daniel himself - all the figures will be available at the show venue, and via @kultmagazine!
