Meet the miniatures – Peter Rabbit and friends

Meet Peter Rabbit and his friends, created by street artist Marcus Crocker for their #littleadventure in London!

Marcus spent over 140 hours on each sculpt, meticulously studying the anatomy of each animal in the same way that Beatrix would have done over 100 years ago. The figures were carefully crafted to ensure the characters were rendered as closely to Beatrix Potter’s original illustrations as possible, capturing their unique personality traits and in some cases, those of their original creator!
