The Frida Kahlo Action Figure

Ear­li­er this week, an orga­ni­za­tion called “Today Is Art Day” launched a Kick­starter cam­paign to pro­duce the lat­est in a line of action fig­ures. First came the Vin­cent van Gogh action fig­ure. Now, join­ing him in the ‘Art His­to­ry Heroes Col­lec­tion,’ there will be a Fri­da Kahlo fig­ure. (Yes, they’ve already raised $19,490, sur­pass­ing their $14,585 goal.) Stand­ing 5 inch­es tall, made of high qual­i­ty plas­tic, Fri­da will come with a mon­key attached to her back, and a detach­able sur­re­al­ist heart. Expect deliv­ery in Sep­tem­ber.
