A Farewell to Bantay

Since Secret Fresh is primarily known for their Designer toys, Pallon, Julie, Tin, and I each painted a  Munny as part of our exhibit there last June-July.

Mine was intended as a companion piece to my painting, “Preserved On A Peacock’s Tail.”  Both the painting and the Munny were based on Argus, a giant with a hundred eyes who Hera set to guard Io from Zeus. Hermes, on Zeus’s orders, killed Argus and Hera preserved his hundred eyes on the tail of the peacock to commemorate her faithful servant.

Bantay, 7″, Arcylic Paint

Truthfully, painting a Munny was probably the most frustrating thing I did for the exhibit haha! It was my first attempt at painting a three-dimensional surface, and for some I reason I couldn’t get the paint to go on as smoothly as I liked. But I did it, and now that all the exhibit stress is behind me, I wouldn’t mind painting another.

I just received a text from our lovely curator that “Bantay” just got sold. Good-bye, my first-born. Have fun with your new owners. 🙂
