Coarse Toys 1:3 Vinyl figure.

The Rise of pain in dreams.

Marking the 5th anniversary of their first 1:3 vinyl figure release, coarse presents "the rise of pain in dreams". Hand sculpted by Mark Landwehr in the distinctive coarse style and first shown in Chicago in 2010, it has taken coarse 2 years to transform the original sculpture into a vinyl piece. A project of passion, pushed to the limit of technical capabilities.

At 27’’ x 14’‘ x 7.4’’ [69 cm x 35.5 cm x 18 cm], the piece is an exceptional large scale vinyl figure, impressive in size and detail – each piece is individually handcrafted. The damaged being, comes sunken into his mattress, clinging to the last strands of life . Embalmed in bandages, but still the blood seeps out of his mouth and wounds. Fighting inside and out for survival.

This lost case comes attached inseparably to his deathbed and with an individually handmade blood puddle. He is secured with foam, slid into a sturdy screen printed cardboard box and closed with a full colour paper sleeve. His casket is lightweight and highly durable for the long journeys ahead.

This incredible pieces limited to 200 units.The cost for this piece is approximately R7500.00.
