Featured here (seen above) as well is the "Buddha Del Toro" sculpture from Chogrin (who i also one half of the show's curators!), who also shared;
"This sculpture was brought to life with the help of Mark Wojtko on design & character turnaround, and Tayler Brown from Figment Foundry, who sculpted digitally, printed, and painted the final figure for the show. We hope to make a limited run in the future."
