Action Figure Family

Item Details
"Imagine walking across the playa and seeing a set of colorful shapes in the distance. As you are drawn closer, you see those shapes to be life-size statues, and the closer you get the more you begin to see that they are all covered in small toys. But not just any toys: hundreds of action-figures of all kinds of styles, backgrounds, comic books, and genres. They are so densely populated that these “heroes” seem to almost create the larger statue themselves by their simple convergence. Look closely – chests open to show the insides, heads have Jack-in-the-boxes that pop! Look into the little girl’s eyes and see visions of Burning Man Past. Compartments and wheels that turn and action figures at work – oh my!"
