MAN-E-NEWS// Clinton Yaws’ Egyptian themed custom Tuttz…

Fresh from the sell-out success of the Pharaoh Hounds series 3 last week, Argonaut Resins proudly present the latest custom in the Artist Series, the Egyptian themed Tuttz from Clinton Yaws! In keeping with the figure’s aesthetic, Yaws’ mind blowing creation takes direct inspiration from King Tutankhamun’s sarcophagus, with the meticulous blue and gold custom featuring various authentic symbols and imagery… even going as far as to turn the tail into the crook from the  original burial coffin! Yaws kindly explains a bit more about the piece-

“The head is done after the mummy mask of Tutankhamun.  Below on the breast is a winged scarab pectoral representing the god Khepri, the rising sun, pushing the sun disc above the horizon.  The left side contains the white vulture image of Nekhbet, the right the image of Uraeus is a symbol for the goddess Wadjet, who was one of the earliest Egyptian deities and who often was depicted as a cobra. Combined they are know in Ancient Egyptian texts as, Two Ladies, the deities who were the patrons of the Ancient Egyptians and worshiped by all after the unification of its two parts, Lower Egypt, and Upper Egypt.”

Due to drop tonight (June 14th) at 9pm EST on the Argonaut Resins store, Yaws’ Tuttz will also be joined by the very last Pharoah Hound from series 3, the white pearl rendered “Majestic”. Priced at $85 plus shipping, the 8″ tall hand cast figure comes with the usual signed and numbered custom box plus certificate of authenticity…
