Axis of Evil - Fun For Adults and Children Alike
"Pour the blood of the villain ' in one basin, and the blood of the gentleman in another: what difference shall there be proved?"
- Thomas Becon, from The Catechism of Thomas Becon, 1844
Every great political scandal has its icon. Watergate had Nixon, Iran Contra had Ronald Reagan and Oliver North, everyone still loves Clinton and Lewinsky, and now we have a new cast of characters--
The Axis of Evil, designed by pop-culture satirist and celebrated artist, Plastic God , in conjunction with top tier vinyl art toy producers, SUPER RAD TOYS , are the iconic projection of a generation totally disenchanted by politics. In this world both hero and villain share the same stage and are equally met with suspicion, distrust and most importantly, humor.
"'Axis of Evil' is a work inspired by a time when the world's attention was hostage to the decisions of five men."-- Plastic God
Plastic God's Axis of Evil is a limited edition boxed set of 5" rotocast collectibles, featuring everyone's favorite cast of current political icons: Saddam Hussein, Tony Blair, Kim Jong-il, George "W" Bush and Osama bin Laden.

ABOUT PLASTIC GOD
Often referred to as the 21st century's Warhol, Plastic God's gently satirical caricatures of musicians, movie stars and madmen (from politicians to murderers) are the perfect symbols of our pop generation. With over 500 different famous faces in his "Heads" collection, there really is something for every one. Some of the famous Plastic God patrons include Jamie Foxx, Bruce Willis, Malcolm McDowell, Seth Green, and Japan's T.M. Revolution.
Plastic God has been exhibiting since 2001 on the West Coast and abroad, and has shown extensively (over 100 shows) in galleries and art-related boutiques including a collaboration with high-end jewelry company Minx. With press in international magazines such as Italian Vogue and Elle, as well as Entertainment Weekly, Sportswear, two covers for BPM and mentions in the New York and Los Angeles Times, it's no wonder he's been dubbed the "The 21st Century Warhol".
