The Winner!

Gordon Selwyn Bennett purchased a nice new topcoat and hat in a vivid green hue.
So uplifted was he with his new apparel, that he wished as many people as possible should share in it’s finery.
So he entered the first of what was to become large yearly races around Retropolis.
With no mind for practicality or the Grand Prize he insisted on sporting the unsuitable clothing.
Getting ahead of the crowd seemed the best way to show off his lovely jacket so he did just that.
Staying there for the duration of the race.
It was such a delightful surprise that this first time racer should be such a natural, that the crowd took him to their hearts.
And afterwards the local team adopted his shiny green tone as their official colours.

This new Mechtorian piece was created especially for the “A journey into the Universe of Art Toys” exhibition. He is currently on show at the Tolosa Puppets International Center at the Topic Museum in the city of Tolosa, in Spain. Organised and mounted by the awesome Art Toy Gama collective.

The piece is available to purchase from the show (Please contact them not me if you are interested) and will hopefully soon be listed on the store.
