Following up on our post earlier this week about Modesty Blaise comic strips up for auction this weekend for charity, we came across this limited edition item that fans of the popular adventure strip created by Peter O’ Donnell for the Evening Standard may love.

First released back in 2016, it’s a limited edition original Modesty Blaise statue/bust, handmade in Sweden/Lithuania. Only 500 copies were created, the likeness based on original artist Jim Holdaway‘s take Modesty Blaise.
