Optimist & Pessimist
Can you look at these two dudes without smiling? Its impossible! Whether you are indeed an optimist or a pessimist, these characters from ArchitectMade are both endearing and charming. They exemplify the duality in each of us; ying Vs yang, happy Vs sad. Their bodies each express a different demeanour and reveal the power of expression in defining one as an Optimist and the other a Pessimist. Which are you? A fantastic gift idea and a guaranteed conversation starter!
Each figure is 13cm high and handmade from the finest teak wood.
That shaggy head of hair is made from soft rabbit fur.
Their eyes are maple and wenge wood, which offers a duality in material that reinforces the dual nature of the objects.
