The Pirate Milbatallas By Entusiasta Gallery

Illustrator David Pugliese and sculpter Pablo S. Sapia are behind this Pirate Milbatallas figure. Releasing through Entusiasta Gallery which is based in Argentina.  The story of Milbatallas starts with a drawing. David did a sketch of this fella a few years ago but since then it has been around in his mind. Since he has been always into toys and collectable figures, when the opportunity of making an art toy came across, he didn’t doubt it.

But he wanted it to be different from other art toys, to be more close to a classic sculpture, detailed, to be a figure with a strong personality, almost like a caricature. So he called the skilled sculptor Pablo S. Sapia to make this dream come true.

Milbatallas is about the joy of just keep on going for what you want. This first edition of 20 unique copies has been hand sculpted and casted in resin. Together with a subtle wood base, this pirate owns a picturesque figure: His arms made out of sticks and hooks in place of feet makes him the perfect monument to perseverance.

I must say this is pretty cool design and sculpt, but one thing that I wish would change is the base. I hope its removable but, even if its not it’s still a great resin figure to have.
