These two just demand to be seen together.
Little People – A Tiny Street Art Project has many pictures of "little handpainted people left in London to fend for themselves". Very idiosyncratic, and very enjoyable.
And via 3QuarksDaily here is an entrancing YouTube video of a very big handpainted (?) person fending for herself in London, with some help. Part of the Sultan’s Elephant by Royal De Luxe, last May in London.
You may want to see it full screen, which you can do here.
