His name is Brian Donnelly, but he is more well-known as KAWS, and this New York-based artist possesses remarkable talent and an unmistakable style. KAWS' "Companion" is his most famous work, an unusual grey sculpture reminiscent of Mickey Mouse, with the face obscured by both hands. Various "Companion" items, including miniature replicas of the famous work of art, are available within the vast inventory on eBay. In most representations, KAWS' "Companion" does, indeed, have his hands help up over his face with his head down. While the character was apparently inspired by Mickey Mouse, its ears are larger and more closely resemble those of an elephant. KAWS' "Companion" has become such an iconic character that he was given his own balloon as part of the 2012 Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. You can find "Companion" figurines in different positions and poses from that of the original. In many, he is standing upright, revealing that he has an "X" in place of each eye. Another popular piece of work depicts KAWS' "Companion" sitting with one leg sticking out and his insides revealed on one side of his body.
