Description

MARILYN's iconic pose from "The Seven Year Itch" has a fresh and fanciful interpretation in this whimsical folk art miniature. Her body is made from an old wooden child's block; she has a paperclay sculpted head and a printed metal face, cut from a collectible tin.

Set her on a shelf, a windowsill, or your dashboard, or on the corner of Lexington and 52nd! Norma Jean makes a marvelous gift for your or for anyone who enjoys movie classics and one-of-a-kind, out-of-the-ordinary upcycled creations. (not a toy)

I went down memory lane as I assembled, sculpted, and painted this original piece using:
* upcycled wooden child's blocks
* paperclay
* acrylic paint
* vintage printed metal tin

Dimensions:
4 3/4" H
2 1/2" W
1 3/4" D

Shipping costs can be combined for purchase of multiple items. Message me in advance of ordering for shipping adjustments.

    Got this as a gift for a friend, she absolutely loves it & displays RBG proudly in her kitchen for all to admire. Customer service was exceptional & I will keep my eyes open for more of the artist’s talented work in the future.

    This may be the funniest, most dear little donkey in our folk art collection!
    Party Girl was featured at her premier appearance, the Easter Eggstravaganza ORCA Coast Pride LGBTQIA & Allies Potluck on Easter Sunday, right next to the multicolored stack of Fiestaware sandwich plates (we don't use disposables) and she was the star of the whole show! Her little "Fiesta!" label was simply perfect. We will enjoy her for years to come!
    The artist was super easy to deal with, shipping was on time. A thoroughly fun Etsy arts experience!!
