THE 9 WORTHIES
Limited edition resin sculpture featuring a look composed by key pieces from the AW12 collections. Produced in a numbered series of 20, all sculpted, hand painted and signed by Salão Coboi.
The concept behind THE 9 WORTHIES revolves around the mysticism and symbology of number 9: The Nine Worthies are nine historical, or semi legendary figures who, in the Middle Ages, were believed to personify the ideals of chivalry. 9 marks the end of a stage in the spiritual development and the beginning of another, a superior stage. In such an apocalyptic scenario, Salão Coboi likes to imagine that these could be the 9 chosen ones, that represent the beginning of the superior stage.
