Last Chance for Mr. Natural in Stone!

This statue is 12 inches tall, made of a light colored sandstone, and hand-carved in Bali. It is based upon the small 4.5 inch statue of Mr. Natural released in 1984. These statues were commissioned by Alex Wood, of Wildwood Serigraphs, who personally oversaw the initial production in Bali. Note that these are carved, not casted, so expect the texture and small irregularities of hand craftsmanship. Still, the statues are all remarkably similar for being hand-carved.

The second and final group of Mr Natural statues have arrived from Bali. There are 25 statues left for sale in this very limited 40-piece edition, hand carved in Indonesia and finished here in the States. The statues are sealed with a tinted sealant so they may be placed indoors or out. Each statue is a little bit above 12 inches high and about 8 inches wide and deep. 

We plan to tint, touch-up and pack the statues throughout the holiday season and ship on December 29th and 30th. Shipping charges may seem expensive, but the statues are heavy, and four were broken in shipping last summer, so we are taking extra precautions with packing the statues this time. Only 25 are available for sale. There are no plans for any more statues of any Crumb characters to be made in Bali, or anywhere else for that matter. 

Happy Holidays! 

U.S. packaging and shipping via Priority Mail is $40 each, Canada $65. Sorry, no international shipping available at this time.

$345 + shipping

Weirdo #26 Serigraph

Wildwood Serigraphs is the exclusive printer of R.Crumb serigraphs in the U.S., but every so often, depending on the image (and Robert's interest in his 78 collection), Robert will agree to release an edition in France. This serigraph of the cover of Weirdo #26 was printed in November 2010 by Anagraphis, and signed, numbered and dated by Crumb in late November. The print was released with permission of Wildwood Serigraphs, including the rights to sell 25% of the edition. I have just received prints number 50-100 of the 200 print edition which I can now offer you at a reduced price. The serigraph is printed with an oil-based ink, in what looks to me like 7 colors, though the publisher says that 9 colors were used. There are no Certificates of Authenticity for this edition, but each print comes with our Wildwood guarantee for your complete satisfaction or your money back.
