This is the first generation artist proof resin casting taken directly from the original sculpture created by Kent Melton for Warner Bros. merchandise department in 1993. It was intended to be used as a 3 dimensional style guide for all of the Alfred E. Neuman products licensed by Warner Bros. It is a great item to enjoy the sculptural details without the distraction of the poor paint job done in the mass produced edition. It is in excellent condition from the archives of the artist. It is signed by sculptor Kent Melton on the bottom.
