Choked Up - Heimlich Hamster Figurine
Hamsters are known for cramming their spacious cheeks full of food. This got the artist wondering if they ever choked on their lunch. One thing led to another, and soon a sculpture of hamsters performing the Heimlich Maneuver was born.
Inscribed on the lid are the most popular breeds of hamster: Syrian, Campbell, Chinese dwarf, Roborovski and Russian. Peter's mouse, who chose to steer clear of the action, does not make an appearance on this piece.
