Colus’s “ICON” Art Toy Rendition of the Biblical “Golden Calf!”

While Moses was atop Mount Sinai receiving the Ten Commandments, the Israelites waited forty days and forty nights… and, eventually, the began fearing that he might not return. At this point, they demanded that Aaron, Moses’s older brother, make them "gods" to go before them, so Aaron gathered up all their golden jewelry and ornaments to construct a molten calf out of. This incident is known as "The Sin of the Calf," but the statue itself was called the golden calf — one of the most famous instances of Biblical icons or cult images. Inspired by this famous tale, Colus has created “ICON,” a stylized rendition of a bull with the artist's own logo on a banner atop its head. This 3D render in ZBrush depicts what the artist hopes will be his next designer toy release, something he plans to make a handful of "if people want it." I don't know about you, but I think this is smashing looking and, those interested in one, can express their desire on Colus’s Instagram post about it.
