Amun-ny Ra Custom Mini Munny by Kevin Gosselin

Amun-ny Ra Custom Mini Munny Resin Figure and Variant Colorway by Kevin Gosselin

Yesterday Kevin Gosselin unveiled this beautiful custom mini Munny commissioned by a private collector. The Egyptian inspired Amun-ny Ra is truly stunning, and thanks to the agreement Kevin struck with the collector he is permitted to make (and sell) a limited series of resin casts based on the original custom figure. Each resin Amun-ny Ra Mini Munny has been individually hand painted and weathered with care, and comes signed and numbered by the artist. As the story goes, Amun-ny Ra is the king of Gods and holds the ankh, the key of life.

Every Amun-ny Ra also includes its own resin base inscribed with Egyptian hieroglyphs. The 4 obelisks read "1 Munny KidRobot, Kevin Gosselin, 2012" and the client's name. The base is inscribed with the words "Tell me why I had to be a power slave?" These are the words to an Iron Maiden song that inspired Kevin while he was creating the piece. While 10 Amun-ny-Ra resin figures were created in all, only 8 will be sold to the public and go on sale at Gosselin’s online store this Saturday, April 14th, at 10am PST for $225 each.
