I missed it the first time around, but am intrigued by it. With all the ceramic sculpture "creatures" being made today, this doesn't come anywhere close to being disturbing. If Picasso had been working with clay during his blue or pink period, he would have done something similar. I don't think it was done by a beginner because there are too many refinements to the clothing and the finishing touches on the stockings. As to the small hands, I've been sculpting for over 40 years, and most people make hands & feet too small in proportion to the rest of the figure. The main reason for this is because we observe the hands and feet moving or gesturing, so when they are still, the artist has to make the feet or hands larger than what their sense of measure would have them be. Even if you measured the size of a hand in relationship to the size of face/head, you would have to increase the hand's size to satisfy the viewer's eye.
Check out some of Rodin's or Michaelangelo's sculptures.
Oh, yes, I find the Saturday Night Live character very disturbing.
I second Babs question. What happened to the figurine?
