The Piranha Plant from Super Mario Brothers is one of the most iconic characters to come from video games….ever! How many of you remember timing the jumps for the Piranha Plant and then just barely grazing it and sending Mario plummeting to his grave somewhere under the tv. Soon after the controls usually followed. The best thing about an original Nintendo system was the abuse they could take. But we all know the best way to take out A Piranha Plant was o get fireballs and then do something stupid to loose them.
Think of how many times you won the game over and over, yet you still played your little heart out. And if the game didnt work, we all somehow figured out that blowing air, and i’m sure much spittle, down into the magical abyss in the cartridge would somehow revive the magic of the circuit board.
So this Piranha PLant was sculpted for the “ 8 bit and beyond “ show at Bottle Neck Gallery.
This sculpture stands about 6 inches tall. I have a few floating around and may still have the molds. If interested i could part with them. Well all but one - email for purchase inquiery
