Kindreds by Martin Hsu and PowerCore

The Protector and the Little One are inseparable. The ever faithful Protector keeps watch as the Little One plays in the sunshine and provides shelter when the weather turns foul. The two have a deep unspoken bond; without the other, neither can be whole.

Kindreds” is a limited edition two piece resin sculpture by San Francisco based artist Martin Hsu. This first color edition is titled “Powder” and is limited to 50 (2-piece) sets worldwide. The work embodies the important themes of kinship and strong relationships between the denizens of the immersive world that Martin has been creating for the past decade.

The two figures can be arranged in multiple ways. The Little One has been designed to sit comfortably atop the head of the Protector, play by its side or fit perfectly underneath the body of the larger figure.

The PowerCore team worked closely with Martin to help realize the artist’s vision. Hand cast in powder white resin, “Kindreds” stands 7 inches tall when arranged together and weighs two pounds with a polished stone-like finish. Each piece is signed by Martin Hsu and comes with a unique PowerCore Certificate Card that identifies each piece as unique and original. The card unlocks collectors access to exclusive online content.

Masterfully sculpted by Roberto Maki (robertomaki.com) and prototyped by Jian Shen (Bearo.com).
