The Jimi Hendrix Limited Edition Sculpture is the first in a series of "retrospective" pieces in the KnuckleBonz™ Rock Iconz™ Sculpture Series. The Jimi Hendrix sculpture portrays the artist in a black and white paint scheme to hearken back to the famous images of the 60's and 70's. Hendrix is portrayed along with his Fender® Stratocaster®. The sculpture is a black & white hand-painted collectible that stands 9” tall on top a wooden base. The piece is hand-numbered and limited to only 3000 available worldwide. The sculpture is an officially licensed figure through AUTHENTIC HENDRIX, LLC as well as Fender® Musical Instruments Corporation.
This is the first of two Jimi Hendrix sculptures that KnuckleBonz is creating. The second sculpture, slated for a 2008 release date, will be created in an entirely different pose and attire and will be portrayed in full color, in keeping with the other figures produced to date in the series.
“The great guitarists of rock are in their own universe and Jimi was the Big Bang. Everything was different in music after he hit the scene in 1966 and 67, says Tony Simerman, President and Creative Director of KnuckleBonz, Inc. “The black and white paint scheme of this sculpture pays homage to that time.”
Widely recognized as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th century,
Jimi Hendrix pioneered the explosive possibilities of the electric guitar. Hendrix's innovative style of combining fuzz, feedback and controlled distortion created a new musical form. Hendrix is the epitome of a guitar legend and an obvious subject for the Rock Iconz™ sculpture series.
The Jimi Hendrix Limited Edition Sculpture has been created using a skilled team of artists to
sculpt a remarkable likeness of the guitarist, cast the figure in a poly-resin material and hand-paint each figure in fine detail.
