24-HOUR TIME-LIMITED RELEASE
For its 20th Anniversary last year, Staple worked with artist James Jean for a limited-edition sculpture that released on March 4th, 2017. This year, we are releasing this phenomenal sculpture in a beautiful bone-edition – featuring a subtle, weathered ivory-look finishing, making this piece a timeless collectible.
James Jean reimagines Staple’s iconic pigeon motif as a dramatically posed protagonist pierced with arrows. The figure is named after General Washizu from Akira Kurosawa’s “Throne of Blood”, which concludes with Washizu facing a beautifully choreographed barrage of arrows. Jean’s winged figure is an embodiment of persistence over adversity, a memory of the slings and arrows anyone is likely to face over the course of 20 years.
Washizu Bone Edition by Staple X James Jean releases 12 May 2018, 10am EDT, in a 24-hour timed release. Each piece is numbered with edition size, based on the total number sold during the time-limited release period.
Handcrafted and individually painted
Standing tall at 9.8” X 12” X 13”, this premium collectible is produced in highly detailed vinyl, each individually hand painted to achieve a beautiful weathered ivory-look effect. The figurine comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by James Jean.
Enclosed in luxurious packaging
We have designed a premium bespoke box for this exclusive item. Blind embossing is used on selected graphics, complimenting James Jean's original artwork that is printed beautifully on the thick cover. High quality foam safely protects the art piece inside.
As part of the collectible set, you should expect a custom enamel pin designed by James Jean, as a companion to the art piece. A proof of provenance comes in the form of a letter-pressed Certificate of Authenticity, signed and editioned by the artist himself.
