The concept is an all-time classic…The “brave and gallant” knight confronting the “ugly and despicable” giant.
The giant’s anatomy is the really fascinating and outstanding feature of the sculpt. Fat and short legs for balance, long arms so he doesn’t have to bend over when he wants to grab something (since he is very tall), huge belly since he eats a lot and a small head because he has such a small brain. The shields of defeated knights adorn his arms and legs for protection and he always carries with him a snack or two (2 sacks with food and a horses leg).
