The Malboro Nun

$ 84.00

No guilty pleasure is forbidden with the devil nuns.  Plus it's not even bad for them.  This one has a large sized 'Malboro' cigarette in her mouth.  The micro sized painted words of the cigarillo shows off this Artist's finite brush strokes .  Avelino's figurines are exquisite and sharp.  For decades Avelino has created this series of nuns.  They portray a humor that is often lost in translation but as those who grew up in the strictest Catholicism it is clever parody. The folds of the gown and the subtle details really make these shine.
