Once again we have discovered a fantastic new hand-made resin figure for your viewing pleasure! Deinos
are the creation of Norwegian designer Bard Vandal
. So far there are 5 colours of Deinos (the purple and blacks being my favourites), and 5 of each colour planned for production.
The first batch of Deinos will be released and sold at Bard's solo show called the "The Birth of Deinos" which will be in New York on the 14-17th of July at Ouchi Gallery. And this will be the only chance to get a hold of a Deino for a couple of months, so if you want to grab one before anyone else be sure to get down to the show!

The story of Deinos:
Aeons ago, from the light of the ever-glowing sphere came a dragon roaring and breathing fire. Those that saw this remarkable view were witnessing the rebirth of Deinos. A creature older than the the universe, an eternal spirit of good luck and happiness for those lucky enough to be in its presence. With only one day to spend before returning to the aether, he spent his time wisely and decided to make sure he was remembered until his next rebirth in 1000 years. Deinos possessed the body of Bard for 24 hours and made him create a line of resin art toys in his image. The owners of these toys would gain life of complete happiness and good luck, as well as a rocking toy for their collection.
