I make a lot of devils, and politicians regularly get portrayed as devils in editorial cartoons and such. So I have modelled some little, inexpensive devils for the upcoming Canadian election!

Shapeways offers a rainbow range of colours in smooth and flexible, so the devils can be chosen to match the colour of the party someone favours – or disfavours. In Canadian politics, orange is for the New Democrats, blue for the Conservatives, and red for the Liberals. (Green is for the Greens, as it happens, and the BLOC Québécois uses blue like the Conservatives.)

The flying devils have a ring on the back and are meant to be suspended from a thread or mono fishing line; the standing ones stand.

I originally made the models for these figures in fired clay, about six times larger than these prints, and then scanned them. Larger versions can be seen in my shop, https://www.shapeways.com/shops/devilsare

The actual figures are derived from Luca Signorelli's frescoes in the cathedral at Orvieto in Italy. He worked shortly after 1500. I, and art historians, don't think he was entirely serious about devils, either.

If USA customers want a Republican devil, or a Democrat, or even a purple devil, so be it. And similarly for persons resident in other jurisdictions.
