From Identical Duo Portraits to Royal Sister Actions Figures

 - May 3, 2012
These strange sibling features speak to a general fascination with brother and sister relationships. The rivalry, bickering and love has been entirely embraced by designers and artists who wish to play up on kin interchanges. Pairs of twins like the Olsens and celebrity sisters like the Kardashians have developed strong followings based on their blood lines, leading fans to covet their close connections.

Identical duo portraits and royal sister action figures have been mass produced. The architects behind such products have recognized the value that is intrinsic to these ventures, in part due to the amusement that consumers get from famous lineages and double-take imagery. Psychologists have often highlighted the importance of developing strong bonds with relatives, and it is no wonder that this sound advice has spilled into the commercial realm.
