Sculptor John Perry was playing around with some rare earth magnets one day and, experiencing one of those creative sparks that creative people sometimes get, suddenly had an idea about how to apply them to figures of people. He soon began to sculpt a series of acrobatic figures in which he embedded the magnets and, lo and behold, discovered that they could be stood one upon the other in amazing ways.
Thus was born Equilique, a unique interactive art piece for adults that’s equally appealing to young people with a penchant for creative play. Each set includes at least 3 performers, a base plate, and an accessory . The pieces can be configured in a nearly infinite array of different positions and still retain their balance – much the way real circus acts can do. Except these never have to come down for lunch!
Combine acrobats from multiple sets to form even bigger sculptures. Figures are made from durable ABS. (This being the work of a true artist, you may sometimes find surprise combinations of pieces in your box - don't worry, it's all part of the fun!)
