Amanda Visell's "Speak & Spell E.T." Wood Sculpture!

For children of the '80s, the elongated drawl of E.T. the Extra Terrestrial is burned forever in our collective memory. "Beee", his alien throat croaked out, before concluding with "good". And we'll also remember the Speak & Spell hand-held, electronic child's learning center, which had a prominent role as a key component of the alien creature's homebuilt interstellar communicator in the Steven Spielberg film, allowing E.T. to phone home, as it were. Well, thanks to the talented hands of Amanda Visell, now the two are merged. Taking the Speak & Spell's iconic shape and reimagining it as the alien's body, she presents the 11-inch tall "Speak and Spell E.T.". Limited to an edition of 7 hand-carved and hand-painted wood sculptures, each one slightly unique through the handmade process, these are available right now in the myswitcheroo online shop for $500 apiece.
