Meet my new pal! I'll go ahead and tell you that he's a bit, well, emo.
He's also huge--nearly two feet tall. I nearly fell over when I saw him! I was sure he'd be more than I wanted to pay, but he was only five bucks! (Thanks to Teresa at the Peddlers Mall for helping me find this out.)
I already have a smaller version of this one, but he's going right to the collection. Except for that little ding in the corner, he's in great shape. I love him. There are even little thorns protruding up from his crown!
You can read more about his story here. It's the kind of mixture of hagiography, gore, and kitsch that fuels my little religious collecting hobby.
We'll have to see how many more friends 2014 brings my way.
