Man with Tail Eating from a Can

I have no idea what this statue actually is, but it appears to be a man with a tail sitting on a box and eating from a can.

[Lisa V, 09/15/2016]

Posthumously unveiled in 2014, Richard Beyer's "Man Eating Dog Food" is a depiction of a man (possibly Richard) at the end of his life reverting to his spirit animal, in this case a dog. He has a tail. It's meant to be a happy statue.
