Some things pop up once in a while via social media and catch your attention. Whether you know the subject or not, this tribute to Italian-born sculptor who worked mainly in Thailand “Silpa Bhirasri” moveable action resin figure with six joints made by Stella A13 made our eyes pop! Admittedly we didn’t know anything about Silpa Bhirasri but this figure made us dig up the info and it was worth knowing more about the design/whom, which it was based around. As you can tell we were drawn from the design itself and the judging from the video and photos the finishing looks fantastic.
Silpa Bhirasri (Thai: ????? ???????; rtgs: Sin Phirasi; IPA: [s?n p???rás??]), born Corrado Feroci (15 September 1892 – 14 May 1962) was an Italian-born sculptor who worked mainly in Thailand. He is considered the father of modern art in Thailand and was instrumental in the founding of today’s Silpakorn University. – Wikipedia
