The thing is actually really small. The guy who made this crafted the neck and head out of wood and mounted it onto a toy submarine.

One of those is on display in the British museum. Any you just have to love the music in that intro.

Anyway, going a bit off-topic here, sorry.

I only get them to that size when I copy them put them somewhere else and then insert them back here. It happened with my boxing glove that I mirrored in photoshop for lefthanded use here.
