MAN-E-NEWS// The Stubs and Lulu resin figures from Jai & Jai x Pretty In Plastic…

The Jai & Jai Gallery is pleased to announce the release of its debut resin art figures, the beautiful Stubbs+Lulu Chow Chows. The first of many proposed collectible art figures to come from the Jai sisters, the 4.5″ tall pieces have been fabricated by art toy visionaries Pretty in Plastic, with each set coming lovingly packaged in a handcrafted bamboo box. Limited to just 60 pieces worldwide, Stubbs+Lulu will be available at the gallery’s opening reception tonight (Saturday, July 28th) from 7 PM until 10 PM, with any remaining heading to the newly opened Jai & Jai store soon for $135 plus shipping…

“The figures are based on their real-life Chow Chow counterparts, a pair of intensely loyal dogs that are as much family as the Jai sisters themselves. Stubbs, the regal and smoothly-coated male, stands with an air of peace-loving ease and silent authority; LuLu’s fierce energy radiates from her crazy spikes and defensive stance. Both of these figurines project the cunning and confidence of the real-life dogs, who have brought luck and love to the lives of the Jai sisters. As Chinese emperors were buried with terra-cotta soldiers for protection in the afterlife, let Stubbs + LuLu serve as your protectors in this life.”
