Straight Outta Looney Tunes! Marvin the Martian's buddy "Gossamer" sculpted by Playful Gorilla!

Yes, that's "Gossamer," the large, hairy, orange monster from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons. His giant tennis shoes and heart-shaped face first appeared in a mad scientist Bugs Bunny cartoon, but it was Marvin the Martian — in a Duck Dodgers and the Return of the 24½th Century short — that finally revealed the big guy's name! Inspired by this classic character, Alexis "Playful Gorilla" Rivera sculpted the pictured 6-inch tall hand-painted piece. Currently on display at the Menace Inc. Studios gallery as part of the "Childish Playthings" exhibition, interested parties can purchase this one-of-a-kind statue from HERE for $300.
