Hummels in the Hood


I know you’ve all seen them – the Hummel on your Granny’s night stand, the dozen or so Precious Moments statues in your spinster aunt’s breakfast nook, cutsie little porcelain figurines of cutsie little children. Adlof Hitler even said of M.I. Hummel:

“there is no place in the ranks of German artists for the likes of her. No, the ‘beloved Fatherland’ cannot remain calm when Germany’s youth are portrayed as brainless sissies.”

Yeah, he hated the cute little statues of children being children. Now, the artist Barnaby Barford has taken a whole new spin on little cutsie statues with the Hoodies in Porcelain collection! Yes, these statues feature one little boy recording another getting his ass kicked on his iPhone, a family pigging out on KFC, a little scraggly boy eatin McDonalds, and four girls with guns dancing in a circle amonst many others.

    I really wasn’t expecting you ever to offend my sense of taste and decency (yes, I do have one), but with this subject matter you have gone too far Mr Thyme.
    Take this in return.

    I think you should get some to represent YOUR grandchildren like Grandma had for hers!
