Description

Each plate in this limited edition is adorned with a photo of a Barbie-like doll complete with a bouffant and thick black eye makeup. These are Waters’ “muses,” the larger than life characters Tina, Kim and Kathy. The Girls, as they are collectively called, represent an uncanny imitation of life in the penetrating stare of their sparkling eyes and through their striking personalities evoked through their distinct styles.  For Waters the collectible plate is a perfect vehicle for sharing his irreverent approach to cultural iconography with a wider, yet still peculiar audience.
