DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS PICTURE?

When you examine the photo, you will see Jim is holding some sort of puerile  ornament or toy.  Just what this creature is supposed to be, is anyone's guess.   The picture must have originated in some magazine/periodical, probably in  South Africa, so any help on its origins would be appreciated.

 
Further research has revealed that part of the photo was featured as one of several sleeve-pics on a South African mixed artist double LP  "The World's Best Country Songs of Love" on Teal Trutone Music DGL 957/8, released in 1988.
