Famous 1996 Nude 23” Sculpture, Armando Munoz, Mexican “La Mona” Tijuana Artist

Armando Munoz, famous for building and living in a 58-foot tall house south of Tijuana that he sculpted in the early 1990s in the form of a standing nude woman called La Mona. To help finance construction he briefly created 23” models in a durable plaster that he sold to tourists and visiting artists. After around 200 hand-painted copies, each slightly different from the others, the mold broke and he did not produce any more. There are VERY few of them left these days.

At one point in 1996, San Diego artist and arts educator Bob Matheny helped Munoz buy a kiln, and organized a fundraiser in La Jolla where they sold the sculptures for $100 each.

You can search Google for: “Tijuana III Millenium Statue” , "Armando Munoz, Tijuana" or "Infamous Babes, Chicks, Dames, Dolls, and/or Statues of Liberty and Freedom" or "Armando Munoz, La Mona"

Great condition, as shown.
