Its a 'Pacca'
...a strange little creature that invades the labyrinthine burrows of meerkats, hunting and devouring them - they usually hunt alone but pairs have been known (they famously mate for life)
African tribesmen believe they ward off evil spirits, and leave them offerings of fruit, cherries, wild strawberries and melons I think... I got a wiki link here
P. rotundus in the lab.
A Pakku rotundus specimen, part of my 8-Bit Labs series of sculptures. Watch the vid here: YouTube - 8-Bit Labs: Pakku rotundus
Each piece is based on a classic videogame character as seen through the prism of real-life anatomy. They are rendered in clay, painted with acrylics and sealed in resin to give the appearance of a specimen preserved in formaldehyde. Seen here is a P. rotundus, which is based on Pac Man.
