Description / Story
The first bust in a series inspired by characters from a traditional deck of playing cards - Four figures sitting on top of the King of Hearts, the Queen of Diamonds, the Jack of Clubs and the Ace of Spades. The joker, jester or fool always has the King’s ear, know he has a lot more…the Kings crown! "The King is dead", there is no doubt that the King has fallen victim to the devious Joker and his lust for power.
