Kuba was first discovered while excavating an ancient burial site in the late 1800’s. He is described in ancient texts as a mischievous combination of beasts with a desire to balance the dark and light found on the physical plane. His varying appearance may take shape as a playful light-colored figure but also has the power to morph into a dark, more sinister incarnation. Kuba’s connection to so many ancient cultures is unprecedented and suggests a bond between the many societies that made up the ancient world. Originally discovered in Colorado, Kuba has been found in multiple forms on almost every corner of the earth. In the past, figures of Kuba were given as gifts to fight off evil spirits but there is evidence that the dark version of Kuba would bestow upon its owner a transcendental state of psychedelic vision that would pave the way for accurate predictions of the future and impossible knowledge of the past.
The Kuba 5" Dunny Art Figure by Mike Fudge is made out of high-quality vinyl and comes in two collectible colors. This gray version is limited to 1300 pieces worldwide and the kidrobot.com exclusive white version is limited to 300 pieces worldwide.
