353B Clown on Stilts

This model represents a clown standing on two high stilts. He is wearing black shoes, red trousers and a white shirt with a black bow tie covered by a light blue jacket. This clown is blond with expressive black eyes and a smiling mouth. His face is full of concentration because he is balancing a green hat on his left hand. This is a description for just one clown; the others have the same physiognomy, but different colour schemes.

355B Equestriennes

This model represents an equestrienne standing on a black and white horse. She is doing stunts only on one foot. She is balancing on one foot and wearing a gold top, a light blue skirt and blue ballet shoes. This equestrienne is blonde with rosy cheeks. The horse is quiet and unafraid, with black reins and a thick black mane. This is a description for just one equestrienne; the others have the same physiognomy, but different colour schemes.

358B Baggy Suited Clown

This model represents a clown wearing a baggy green outfit with yellow buttons and decorations, as well as a conical hat decorated with three white dots.

This is a description for just one clown; the others have the same physiognomy, but different colour schemes.
