Miniature Ralph Lauren Sculptures

" A Small Polo Obsession…" Sculpture and art by Joseph Vaughan

The Miniature “Sit-down” Bear .

The essential staple of any collection…The popular ‘Bear range’ from Ralph Lauren came after a Steiff teddy bear was presented to Ralph by a member of his staff and since then bear designs have inhabited sweters,tracksuit tops,socks and bags..Artist Dick Tahsin was the man who created mischevious bears in a range of different poses and outfits….

The miniature sculpture featured here is the classic “Sit Down bear” with arms held aloft,wearing a USA sweater himself (with tiny flag),chunky belt with buckle and all american blue jeans.

This piece was made popular, in part due to Kanye West being photographed in it (also appearing on his ‘College Dropout’ CD cover).
