If you want a really unique gift – a one of a kind – then you better dust off your eBay bidding skills and get ready to make a play for the Athena statue that graced the cover of the Pop Sculpture book.

This really is a unique gift for those who love to fill their trophy rooms with statues and maquettes of pop culture icons.

Haven’t heard of the Pop Sculpture book?

Pop Sculpture is an instructional, extensively illustrated, 272-page book about the process a professional sculptor goes through working in the collectible field. Experienced pro sculptors Tim Bruckner (DC Direct, Toy Biz) and Ruben Procopio (Disney, Electric Tiki) — with an assist from Zach Oat (ToyFare, TWoP) — will teach you the techniques you need to sculpt, cast, paint and photograph your prototype prior to entering mass production. Available now from Watson-Guptill, a division of Random House.

This is definitely a one of a kind statue, as no molds exist. Does this mean they literally broke the mold after building Athena?

The statue stands over two feet tall, and author Tim Bruckner is putting the statue up for auction beginning today.

Hey, even if you don’t get this statue, the book is a great gift idea for the statue fan in your life.

    Is this version of Athena from a series or is it an original depiction? Just curious.
