Somewhat recently, Tool began teasing a special 10,000 Days-related collectible. On social media, many fans voiced their concern that this collectible might be related to an NFT (non-fungible tokens), but we can now confirm that said item is not an NFT, but a maquette.
This maquette – otherwise known as a scale model of an unfinished sculpture – is that of a fetus skull. News of this maquette comes from the band’s social media. Via an Instagram post from the Tool account, the band provided the following caption:
“We’re very proud to announce our debut Collectible Statue. The Fetus Skull Maquette – inspired by TOOL / 10,000 Days album artwork by @alexgreycosm 💀 Limited Edition 🔥 Release date 12-16-2022 @ 12PM (ET)”
You can find an image of this fetus skull maquette below. Is this a Tool collectible you are interested in picking up? Or is there something else you would have preferred?
When it comes to other Tool-related stories, are you aware of the song the band will never play live again? Speaking to the origin of this song, Maynard James Keenan shared the following in the past: “Recognising, identifying, the cycle of abuse within yourself. That’s the first step of the process: realisation; identifying. The next step is to work through it. But, this song is about the first step in the process, which is recognizing.”
Also, a nine-year-old fan of the band created a super awesome Tool medley! She created this medley using a guitar that Tool member Adam Jones gifted her – that is super cool!
In the past, Maynard has had some rough interactions when it comes to the Tool fanbase. He once called a portion of that fanbase a really vulgar slur, and he has even gotten into a physical fight with a fan. Links to both of these stories can be found below.
