Blizzard made a rare weekend update to their @Diablo twitter feed, pointing to this awesome fan-made sculpture of the Unburied monster. Gazing upon it, I thought it looked awfully familiar, and as a quick site search revealed… it is familiar. We posted news and photos of that same statue last July, when it had just won a sculpting prize in a fair in Marin County in Northern California (where I live, oddly enough).
The new photo is much better than the broad daylight, picnic table background of the previous photos though, so we’ve added it to the fan art gallery, and you can see it below. Congrats again to the creator, who was previously hard at work on this Fallen head on a stick. Let’s hope for some more Diablo-themed creations from Mantle Studios.
