My Year 8 school Art report reads:

“Christopher has shown much potential for this subject and has many creative ideas. He must however make sure he carries his ideas through to the finished product.”

So here’s Maurizio Cattelan’s Daddy Daddy, reimagined with a change of scale, and ready for bath time. A knockout miniature knock-off; made over the course of eighteen excruciating months. He’s waterproof, made from a buoyant polyurethane resin and comes boxed, floating in a vacuum formed mid-blue tray.
