Description

Each plate in this limited edition is adorned with a photo of a Barbie-like doll topped with a bouffant and thick black eye makeup. These are Waters’ “muses,” Tina, Kim and Kathy. Collectively called The Girls, these larger than life characters represent an extraordinary imitation of life in the penetrating stare of their sparkling eyes and through their dramatic personalities as evoked in 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 distinctive audience.
