From the original poster of the 1979 exhibition, "The Imaginary Museum of Tintin", this beautiful figurine depicts Captain Haddock visiting an exhibition dedicated to the world of Tintin. Carved in resin and carefully painted by hand, it is numbered and delivered in a protective box.
"In June 1979, a major exhibition, destined to travel afterwards, was inaugurated at the Palais des Beau-Arts in Brussels. The detail of its contents escapes Hergé, but its designers explained to him that it was to confront the mythical objects collected by Tintin during his adventures to the real objects which inspired them. On the poster of the exhibition, Hergé tries to organize the incursion of his main characters in the middle of an imaginary installation to make all collectors mad with jealousy.
