When Muscle Cars Go "Muscular"… Mike Calboni's debut resin figure!

According to artist Mike Calboni, his above pictured Designer Toy "Muscular" depicts "a new form of life on earth," one that is "living tissue mutated in woods into the new form - it combined muscles from mammals and structure of a car." And while Calboni didn't say it, I will: it's a true muscle car. These almost 6-inch long pieces are cast in resin and handpainted by the artist, who also signs them. Priced at €150 (approx. $200) apiece, they are available now in Calboni's online shop.
