Taken from the comic illustration of the poster created by Hergé for the exhibition “Le musée imaginaire de Tintin” in 1979, this pretty figurine depicts Bianca Castafiore visiting a gallery dedicated to the universe of Tintin. The figurine is sculpted in resin, carefully hand-painted and comes in a sturdy box with a certificate of authenticity. This figurine was also produced in a numbered edition.
In June 1979, a major exhibition, which would later be organized in other locations, was inaugurated at the Center for Fine Arts in Brussels. Hergé was not aware of the full catalogue, but the organizers of the exhibition explained to him that the aim was to compare the legendary objects Tintin collected during his adventures with the real objects that inspired Hergé. Hergé created the poster for the exhibition and drew his main characters in the middle of an imaginary setting that many Tintin fans and collectors could only dream of.” Excerpt from Chronologie d'une œuvre - Volume 7” written by Philippe Goddin.
