I am not very much a person for bric a brac around the house. And by bric a brac I mean little porcelain figures and odd little statues and weird knick-knacks that I remember my mum having on shelves all over the house.
No, I am not someone who likes those at all. At all.
Explain to me why I hunger for these to the extent where I broke out the credit card and bought one.
This is the write-up for Sandman:
The Sandman and his older sister, Death, are the next in the popular DC Chronicles statue line, celebrating the legacy of Vertigo!
As two of the seven siblings from The Endless, The Sandman and Death have epitomized the very essence of the Vertigo line: smart, serious and edgy. Written by New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman, The Sandman saga opened new horizons for comics and graphic novels.
The DC Chronicles statue line has a consistent base, and the retro-style logo on the base further gives the piece a sense of the period from which it originated.
These limited-edition, hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statues measure approximately 7.75″ high x 5″ wide x 3.5″ deep for The Sandman and 7.5″ high x 5″ wide x 3.5″ deep for Death and each is packaged in a 4-color box with a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity.
Limited Editions. Manufactured to order.
I would love to have Death too, but she is sold out. So I opted for the Sandman instead. I will definitely upload pictures of it when it arrives at home. It is the first ever geeky item like this that I’ve ever bought myself. I feel quite giddy with excitement!
