Reminds me of Grim Fandango, very cool. Is the base of the statue a heart?

Thanks! Yes, the base is a heart, and the whole thing is about 10cm tall (not quite 4 inches). It's a souvenir from Mexico. The macro lens shows the smallest imperfections, so I had to use the heal tool to get rid of the worst and then I used a Gimp filter called "oilify" to smooth it out even more and give it a more painterly feel. The flash is camera-right with my macro diffuser on it, and there's a reflector (ie a piece of white cardboard) camera-left. The back is a piece of bluish semi-transparent plexiglass propped up against the wall, and they're on a slab of shiny black stone. I haven't done a lot of indoor, studio shooting, so I'm pretty happy with how this one came out.
