    This bust is a likeness of Herman Munster (Fred Gwyne) of the sitcom The Munsters. This is a 1/3 scale bust. Bought this direct from the sculptor (Chris Elizardo). The base i took from my base's box and the nameplate was sculpted by me. Painted with automotive paints, acrilycs, enamels and soft pastel chalk. Thistook me 3 weeks to paint.

    Very nicely done. The treatment of the glossyness in the mouth and eyes is a good touch, especially in this scale. The sculpting is a very good likeness as well. Very fun stuff!

    Hi Carlo,
    Great sculpt and you've done an excellent job painting it.
    Is it commercially available?
