Creative geniuses are doing good things to Nick Cave right now for the good of us all. First someone turned Red Right Hand into a Dr. Seuss book and now he’s been reimagined as a series of plastic toys.
Plasticgod, who’s previously turned the likes of Miley Cyrus, Tupac and Bjork into artworks, has created six Nick Cave toy dolls each portraying a different one of his songs.
We’re not talking loose portrayals though, they are very literal and hilariously spot on. The Red Right Hand toy has an actual red right hand, while the Babe, You Turn Me On toy has an ‘on’ switch. Again, genius.
They have been made for Comic Con San Diego and will be sold for US$40 each. Only 200 of each dolls will be made so you’re probably going to have to hop-a-plane to the US if you want to get your hand on one of them.
If not, below are pictures of all the toys (via Pitchfork) so we can imagine the thrill of owning six tiny Nick Caves. If only.
