Munch’s “The Scream” Immortalized as Table Museum figma Figure
The figure reproduces “The Scream”, a painting on the subject of unease.
The next release in figure and model manufacturer Good Smile Company’s “Table Museum” figma series will be Expressionist artist Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”.
The Table Museum series reimagines famous works of art as highly poseable figures, with previous releases including Rodin’s “The Thinker”, “Venus de Milo”, and Donatello’s “David”. Munch’s “The Scream” is the second entry in the series based on two-dimensional artwork, following the previous release of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man”.
“The Scream” exists in four versions: oil painting and crayon versions created in 1893, a pastel version in 1895, and a tempera version in 1910. Numerous monochrome lithographs were also produced. The Table Museum figma is based on the original 1893 oil painting.
The figure is a multi-jointed reproduction of the painting’s main character, articulated in numerous locations for complete freedom of posing. It can be placed in front of the included backdrop in the original pose to mimic the painting, or posed in an endless array of fun and creative positions.
The figure retails for 5,370 yen, plus tax. It will be released in May 2017.
The painting’s central character can be removed from its backdrop.
The figure includes a wide variety of additional hand parts.
