In honor of the actor’s dedication to the environment, the figure’s head was created from natural clay and beeswax materials containing organic pigment. All design materials used in the creation of the figure were recycled upon completion and the production process took place exclusively by hand and daylight. Even more, the team that created the figure made an active effort to use environmentally friendly forms of transportation such as cycling and public transportation to get to and from the studio.
