Scarygirl artist Nathan Jurevicius has just released his newest character, Owlclam. Premiering at the Throwback exhibition at Toy Art Gallery in Los Angeles, Owlclam is a Japanese-made vinyl figure standing 6.5″ tall and featuring five points of articulation. Each figure is signed by the artist.  Available at Magic Pony in very limited quantities.

Drawing inspiration from his Lithuanian heritage and its folklore, Owlclam is the culmination of his ever-expanding Peleda universe, his Sakotis exploration, and his love of ocean-based myths. The word “Peleda” means “owl” in Lithuanian and Sakotis is a Lithuanian spiked tree cake that almost has the look of dried coral.
