Description
Tux is the mascot for the GNU/Linux operating system.
Author
The original image was painted in 2D by Larry Ewing who grants permission to use his image on the condition that you tell anyone who asks that he painted it using The GIMP. The 3D version was modelled in Blender by Oliver Baker - this version (specifically for 3D printing rather than animation) was built in November 2006) - this 3D model in all of it's formats has been released under the GFDL license.
Size
The 'real' Tux is generally presumed to be about a meter tall. But make your model any size you like.
