Van Gogh

I found this super cool toy on the internet!
I think I need one!

Vincent van Gogh is truly the epitome of posthumous fame and notoriety. He experienced very little success in his life, yet today countless posters of his paintings hang in homes throughout the world. This 5-1/4" (13.3 cm) tall, hard vinyl figure has two interchangeable heads and comes with a paintbrush, a palette, an easel, a frame and some mini masterpieces to display.

yes! you should have one. this past weekend we had an art girl gathering and a friend brought Van Gogh Vodka! who knew?! the bottle had his paintings around it facing inside the bottle. you looked through a little window and they were enlarged and looked like they were in a museum. and it made very good cocktails. it's so wild what becomes of this man.
