I recently purchased this in Beaumont last month. It caught my eye……. and I thought what were they thinking? It isn’t a nice lady head, or the ones with nude lady bodies…. it is just ripe for animating. This lady was modeled after a fire hyrdrant. I especially like the stones in her toes and the careful applique of her fingernail polish. And here it is a sculpture yet they draw in the cleavage.
And WHAT – PLEASE TELL me what is going on inside of this coffee cup?
Well, I must say that my favorite thing about this is that you’ve left part of the price tag on, which immediately elevates it to a higher level of Kitsch as it’s on display with this extra added feature.
I have no idea what’s going on on the inside of the cup other than it looks very sexual. It’s either an avocado pit or a vagina.
I don’t usually like stuff like this but this one’s so odd I can go for it. I also like the little jewels on the shoes and her perfectly painted fingernails. I’d be scared to drink out of her but with that said if I had a rhinestone necklace that spelled out kitsch I’d throw it on her posthaste.
If I owned this gem, I’d put it in on this page: Mugs I’ll Never Drink Out Of. http://www.tackytreasures.com/tackyhtml/mugs.html
It’s that mystery image inside the mug that will forever prevent a thinking person like myself from using it as a mug.
This mug of most certainly belongs on your page! Any way you can link here from there? And all your mugs should be here in the Museum. That’s a stunning collection you have!
Check out this one I featured in my blog a while back. I drink out of it every day despite the fact that it’s completely horrible looking: https://www.alleewillis.com/blog/?s=pretzel&x=36&y=15
I am so thrilled to receive this high honor. It is going on my resume and into my personal biography. Now people will listen to me.
Thank you for validating my collection.
Call me crazy but the image on the inside looks like a misshapen breast to me (which would go with the overall shape of a lady with big knockers).
Does she have three feet??
To me it was suggestive of another part of the female anatomy… I’m pretty sure she only has two feet but you bring up a good point that how is she balanced….?
