Overlooking Gotham on a gargoyle: new Batman statue from DC

Since the name “Batman” is practically synonymous with “superhero” in 20th- and 21st-century pop-culture imagination, it’s more than fitting that he gets the painstakingly detail-oriented sculpture treatment here. Postured in stoic, pensive form on a gargoyle overlooking Gotham City, this sculpture embodies all of the dark, urban melancholy that made the comic-book series so renowned.

This miniature statue is based on the artistic stylings of Jim Lee and sculpted by DC collaborator Tim Bruckner. What sets this figure apart is its metallic silver finish, lending a moonlit, rainy glisten to the well-known Batman costume. He is six inches tall and created specifically for display, a comely reminder of the gargantuan franchise that made the bat-winged crusader so famous.

Because Gotham always needs a shiny, caped protector.
