Gort protects my desktop

I'm a lover of stuff. Two things that I am particularly in love with are the 1951 movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and collectibles that relate to the aforementioned classic Sci-fi flick. Hence my glee at purchasing this 5" die-casted tough-guy ...

Made by the good people at Rocket USA, this little sculpture depicts Gort - a Galactic copper conceived on a planet far, far away.

I painted Gort a little while ago ...


Incidentally, prints are available at my good friends over at Red Bubble :)
