Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows what this is (other than a Beholder):

Is it a fan creation? A promo something? Or something else? As far as I know, the sculpt is in bronze... any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I guess no point asking the poor green monkey/teletubby the beholder has obviously already brutalized.... 8O

Bronze?  That thing must be heavier than hell...How would you hang it... with towing cables?  BTW, it is pretty cool.  I was trying to gauge its size, not sure from that picture as to its scale.

Can you stick a glass of lager in it? Then it would be a beerholder.

Its approx. 26 pounds, and about 16 inches bottom to top eye.. pretty big and a little heavy. I still wonder who made it :)

I have no clue who made it or what it might be worth, but it is an awesome sight. 8O    8)
SWEETNESS   :!:

My guess though is that it is highly unlikely to simply be a fan creation.
Too much skillful work for that. (My opnion)

Had to be a hired professional job I think and is likely not a unique item, though rare I am sure.
