James Brown and The Famous Flames

acrylic on polymer clay & wood
box 5 x 15 x 3 inches
figures approximately 4 ΒΌ inches high

This is a fantasy “all star show” loosely based on James Brown’s performance at the 1964 Teenage Awards Music International (T. A. M. I.). A more accurate & comprehensive set would include additional guitarists, backing vocalists, and a pianist as well as a drummer and numerous horn and string players. I don’t believe these five individuals ever performed together.
