George Clinton’s

Right Hand of Funk

I had the opportunity to make a silicone cast of George Clinton’s hand during his last visit to Holland as part of his european tour. I just brushed the silicone on George’s hand while my buddy Ten (who is a regular member of George’s P-Funk Allstars) helped and also talked George through the process, in a hotel room. George sat for about 1,5 hours until the silicone hardened, his right hand doing the famous ‘funksign’ gesture. After that I peeled the silicone off, like a glove, threw it in my bag and (after a little impromptu hotel party with Belita Woods, Mike ‘Clip’ Payne and more P-Funk allstars) me and my cousin Reggie went back home.

In the following weeks I made a polyurethane copy and it was incredible...

all the pores, ridges, wrinkles, torn nails and creases are there, on the hand that shaped P-funk all these years and iconized the P-Funk gesture. I am leaving bits of casting flesh and imperfections on every copy, which adds to the handmade quality and overall Funkiness. I think this is as close you can get to George-- if you’re not on the guestlist !

I added a nice flat base with George’s name and a Zwazi logo embossed in it. Then I made a production mold. Yes, it would be a killer object on your desk...order your numbered copy on www.georgeclintonhand.com
