Miao Opens November 14th!
Nov. 14th – Dec. 7th, 2008 Opening Reception: Friday, November 14th, 6-10pm
The Miao’s are arriving in full force, and they are amazing to say the least! Before we know it, we’ll be entirely bombarded with close to 50 of these crazy customs. We’re getting a great response to the show already, and we’re sure the opening will be a packed house. Some of these must be seen in person, and would make an insane holiday gift, so hopefully we’ll see you at the opening!
About the Show: Subtext has teamed up with Zakkamono, to bring you an incredible custom vinyl show just in time for the holidays. The format will be the new Miao (Lucky Cat & Mousubi), and we have curated nearly 50 artists from around the globe to do custom versions of this great toy! Miao is the first collectible designer vinyl figure designed by Zakka. It is an updated design of the Japanese Maneki Neko/Lucky Cat (an iconic Japanese figure that brings good luck and good fortune). Miao measures 7-inches tall and comes with his BFF Mousubi, a 3-inch character designed with the elements of a musubi/onigiri (Japanese rice ball wrapped with Nori/seaweed) and a mouse.
