Giant Bazooka Gum Army Man
The Topps Chewing Gum Company began making Bazooka shortly after WWII. These giant Green Army Men are hand-painted with a bubble gum texture to represent Bazooka Gum. The art concept is a form of rebus. Rebus is defined as a puzzle, in which a word is represented by combinations of images and letters. Example: if I took a bunch of apples and used them to spell out the word "pie," the result would be "apple pie."
These large figurines stand 15" tall and 21" inches long, topped off with my Boom Stick design on the bazooka. I like to place them on the floor, but they also make a great table centerpiece.
