I have blogged, not once, but twice about Belgian artist Wim Delvoye (shown above at the unveiling of his action figure). His tattooed pigs and pigskins have always been a hit with my readers and provoke many controversial comments.
Well, now I found that there's actually an action figure of the controversial Brussels artist that you can purchase. This very realistic Wim Delvoye Action figure comes with many accessories like a tattooing pistol, his farmer boots, two pairs of glasses removable clothes and of course an accurate model of the Cloaca N°5 (his famous feces-producing machine shown below).
Created in an edition of 3000, the doll comes in a Wim Delvoye designed box.
size of figure: 34 x 37 x 15cm | 13.4 x 14.6 x 5.9in
medium: mixed media
