Toy Art Gallery has announced the impending release of their first bronze sculpture - “Hapiko” by Yosuke Ueno. Hapiko is a Lucky God, common in Japanese folklore since ancient times.
She is a quintessential Yosuke Ueno character, a smooth, innocent figure, nose-less and without eyebrows. She is often featured in Yosuke’s paintings and represents the Happy Girl.
The 9" tall Hapiko bronze statue was sculpted by Yosuke Ueno and is limited to an edition of 10 pieces. It will be released on Monday, March 7th 2011 at store.toyartgallery.com.
