palatniks, an obsession

It all started with a standing cat Palatnik I picked up at Goodwill for $5. Now I can't get enough of these little guys! They are very distinct in design using lines and dots. They range in size from 2 to 12 inches. Sometimes you will find them with or without the ©Pal signature inside the piece. They should have a paper sticker underneath that says "Made in Brazil" unless it was removed. Abraham Palatnik (born 1928) is a Brazilian artist and inventor of kinechromatic art.
