He looks real!
Yes, he does. And he's so heavy that I can't lift him. In order for me to do a little clean-up on him, my SIL had to put him up on a swivel stool in front of me. That's one solid piece of work.
What is he made of?
I'm assuming it's chalkware, although I didn't realize chalkware could be so heavy. I could barely drag it, and there's no way I could lift it straight up onto that stool. Whatever it is, it's not hollow, that's for sure.
