ELZ-Co. has just released its 武CHING ll – 中肝二膽 3D-printed art toy for international orders. The figure features a young woman on a rainy day, umbrella at the ready, imagining herself to be Guan Gong, the Chinese god of war and loyalty.
This enduring childhood fantasy is the character’s armor from the crushing, daily grownup grind. 中肝二膽 is a Chinese idiom that refers to the inseparable bond between two people, likely a reference to the character and her fantasy. The figure is part of the brand’s 武CHING series which explores the concept of ‘masks’, those that we see when we meet someone briefly and those that we present to others. The masks serve as stand-ins for genuine interaction between people.
武CHING ll – 中肝二膽 features a dynamic pose that turns and twists with a design blending the modern and the traditional. Her long hair flows from black to green as she becomes immersed in her daydream. Swinging from back to front, wrapped around her neck almost like a scarf, her twirled locks complete the dramatic sculpt.
The 武CHING ll – 中肝二膽 3D-printed resin art toy is available from ELZ-Co. as a made-to-order figure from HK$480 ($62).
