I have recently come into some Bowen statues, busts, of a wide variety of Marvel heroes and villains–many of whom I do not recognize. They range from the wildly outrageous to the vaguely familiar to the iconic.
I found the simplicity of this statue of Moon Knight striking. Something about the collection as a whole is mesmerizing.
The thought and effort put into
gathering such a collection is breathtaking. The statues have been
accumulated over years, reflecting various stages of the collector’s life. A biography.
Looking at this one, Zombie, I think about the collector and what he was up to when he purchased it. The statues form a whole, and the notion of dispersing the collection troubles me.
