Anesthesia Vinyl Bust Launch

Anesthesia Veiled robotic lady Bust. Vinyl art collectible by Doktor A and 3D Retro. Sculpted by Bruce Whistlecraft. White Borley edition.

I am very pleased to announce the launch of my latest vinyl Art Collectible.

The classically styled bust of Anesthesia was inspired by the incredible marble work of Raffaele Monti (1818–1881).

I sculpted the original piece in 2014 as a high end art sculpture. Now 3D Retro have transformed her into a stylish and affordable addition to your home decor.

I am very proud of Anesthesia as she is the first vinyl production piece of mine that I have sculpted myself. 3D Retro have done an amazing job in retaining all the tiny details of the original. The precision of the mechanical garland around her head is reproduced spectacularly. And the gossamer nature of her veil is just as effective in vinyl as in the original.

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.

Acrylic, ABS, Epoxy, Lead, Steel, Rubber, Paper, Found Objects.
11.5″ tall X 7″ X 18″

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.
