Your Very Own Superflat Museum

Walking down St. Marks Place last weekend, I happened to glance in the window of a Japanese toy store. To my surprise, I saw a whole collection of miniature Takashi Murakami pieces sitting there for the taking.

Scaled to the size of pocket figurines, the ten works in "Takashi Murakami's Superflat Museum Set" present his biggest hits--from Miss Ko2 to Mr. DOB to the happy mushrooms--done in a smaller size.

The store I found was selling the pieces individually for prices ranging from $10 to $20. With a little web searching, though, I found another outlet that is retailing the whole set of ten for an even $100.

But I should have known to look on eBay first. There's an on-line store there that has a category devoted to these little figures.
