|Mike Leavitt "A Mirror Entrance in the Secret" (2013) Michael Jackson Ewok|
Have you ever wondered what the late Michael Jackson would have looked like as an Ewok? Your wish has been granted!
The actors in Star Wars are iconic, but sculptor Mike Leavitt has brilliantly taken those characters and turned them on their ear by combining them with famous people living and dead. He carved 18 articulated action figures with some really amazing detail. Here are some of my favorites.
|Mohandas Gandhi \ Yoda|
|Abraham Lincoln \ Han Solo|
|Steve Jobs \ C-3PO|
|Michael Jackson \ Wicket the Ewok|
|Charles Darwin \ Chewbacca|
|Albert Einstein \ R2-D2|
|Mike Tyson \ Darth Maul|
|Nelson Mandela \ Obi-Wan Kenobi|
Visit his online gallery IntuitionKitchenProductions.com to see his stunning pieces and thoughtful explanations of what Michael Jackson and Ewoks have in common.
Here's how he describes the exhibit: "'Empire Peaks' is an entirely new set of collectible statuary debuting at Jonathan LeVine Saturday November 23, 2013. The new series is composed of 5-part articulating pieces ranging in height from 12″ (30 cm) to 36″ (1 meter), sculpted in carved wood and polymer clay. The November 23, 7-9pm is completely open to the public. I’ll be personally in attendance so come say hi." - Mike Leavitt
