The Carrot Slayer
Very Bravo - the brand of toys, design and fashion, conceived by Italian artist Mauro Gatti - presents its second release, The Carrot Slayer.
The Carrot Slayer is their tribute to vegetarian movement: a funny executioner that, being against the murdering of people and animals, decided to put himself to the test in the art of cookery, cutting and chopping vegetables with his axe. On his belly, a cheap tattoo with the writing "Veg Life" and, chaperoning and smiling at him, a little freshly chopped carrot, bursting with irony and good humor.
The 8" tall Carrot Slayer will be launched in April 2010 in two limited editions of 250 pieces each: Gruesome wears leather and brings to mind a fetish atmosphere, and Hippie is dressed in exuberant colours, as a nostalgic flower child. The Carrot Slayer is produced by Superpowers and distributed by Atom Plastic. Look for them to retail around 45€ (about $60).
