Beneath Wakanda lies the only source of the extraordinary substance Vibranium, an irresistible lure to all who seek it. In Ghim Ong’s dramatic sculpture of the Black Panther, the protector of Wakanda steps out of deep jungle shadow, ready to face those intending to plunder his homeland of this valuable resource.
The level of detail achieved is extraordinary, with the highly tactile weave almost diverting attention from the seam detailing and ceremonial necklace of T’Challa’s suit. A thick tangle of gnarled roots, exquisitely modeled in black bonded porcelain, enhances the pewter sculpture’s glimmering finish.
Starting out as a graphic designer, Ghim’s strong interest in 3D sculpting led to a career at Comicave Studios, the renowned Singapore-based producer of high end collectibles, where he worked on styling and sculpting Marvel, DC and Disney properties.
132 years of Craftsmanship
Since 1885, our designers and craftsmen have expressed their love and understanding of the material by continuously pushing the envelope in pewter design while staying true to our heritage of craftsmanship. Each Royal Selangor item is hand cast by pouring molten pewter into steel moulds quickly and efficiently.
After cooling, each individual pewter piece is polished and soldered onto other appendages such as spouts and handles, all done by hand. This attention to detail and precision has made Royal Selangor's pewter pieces durable and timeless.
