Nigo: From Me to You
Curry Up Statue
Made in Japan, this ceramic 'Curry Up' statue was custom commissioned. 1 of 5, signed by NIGO.
45.72 x 28.26 x 109.22 cm ; 18 x 11 1/8 x 43 in.
While NIGO is the founder of the Curry Up restaurant franchise, Mr. Cumin is the face. Mr. Cumin—the mustachioed chef character—adorns the facades of the multiple Curry Up locations across Tokyo and has even been reimagined in gold and diamonds (see lot 38). This ceramic statue version of the platter-clad, curry concocter stands just 3.5’ tall. It was made in Japan in an edition of 5. This edition is signed by NIGO.
