This is a Goblin Soothsayer figure based on a creature from the Magic: The Gathering collectible card game, which is produced by Wizards of The Coast (currently owned by Hasbro). If you're not familiar with MTG, basically you play the role of a dueling wizard, summoning creatures and casting a variety of spells, in the form of cards, to defeat your opponent. While the rules and nuances are a little complicated to learn, it's a fun tabletop game with a lot of strategy.
There isn't a whole lot else I can say here, background-wise, that you can't get from reading the actual Goblin Soothsayer card (which I included amongst my entry photos). Obviously this critter's profession is based on the ancient, and rather barbaric, practice of reading the future in entrails. I just dug the artwork and decided to make it as my entry for this challenge.
This particular figure was made completely from scratch in a single day out of various craft/art materials. The tree, goblin, and intestines were all sculpted/painted separately and then glued together to create the finished sculpture.
