Tokidoki x 8 oz — Salaryman Family Statues (9.9)

Apportfolio has collaborated with Tokidoki on two new large-format (14.5") Salaryman Family statues. The new pieces are part of the new 8 oz brand which offers art editions for collectors starting to explore the higher-end market. Previewed at Shanghai Toy Show back in April, the impressive pieces feature Simone Legno's Salaryman Tiger characters envisioned as rules of ancient Rome. The fun concept, inspired by his love for his home city of Rome, is well executed and offers a fun, visually enticing take on his characters. 

Seated on ornately decorated thrones and dressed in traditional Roman garb, the male and females character hold their daughter and son on their laps, respectively. The metallic silver thrones feature  Roman iconography with the signature Tokidoki flair including Unicornos and Tokidoki-style Roman soldiers.

My Tiger Nation family has many important elements that are very dear in my life. First of all, the Salaryman design is my favorite character and tiger is my favorite animal. These designs are all about family and in fact, family is the most important thing to me. This has been so since I was a child, and even more so now that I am the father of a girl and boy. I feel I exist, work and breathe just for them right now. The choice of this Tiger family being in ancient Romans look is because Rome is my home town, and I love and feel pride for its rich history and iconography" — Simone Legno

Limited to 150 pieces each, the Salaryman Family statues (Male and Female) will be released this Monday (9.9) at 7 AM PDT directly from Apportfolio for ¥2380 ($334) each.
