Fathead is selling a king-size picture of Warren Buffett's face for $29.99 each, all for charity.

A part of Rock Ventures umbrella company owned by billionaire Dan Gilbert, Fathead owns thousands of graphics of celebrities, athletes and superheroes and creates its large wall cut-outs for over 600 licensed brands.

Gilbert, who is also the founder and Chairman of Quicken Loans, was seen with Buffett when his fellow billionaire visited Detroit to make an announcement about a small business lending program with Goldman Sachs worth $20 million.

"The Warren Buffett Big Head," a huge cut-out graphic by Fat Head that can be attached to walls, is the most recent Gilbert-Buffett collaboration.

Seth Meyers was the first to reveal it when Buffett visited "Late Night with Seth Meyers" of NBC with Gilbert to promote Yahoo Sports and Quicken Loans' $1 billion perfect NCAA bracket challenge.

Patrick McInnis, Fathead CEO, said that after Meyers showed "The Warren Buffett Big Head" to a national TV audience, a lot of customers phoned them asking about the graphic.

McInnis said that Buffett, who is known for his charitable activities, graciously agreed when they reached out to him about the project as long as the profits go to Detroit non-profit groups, which Fathead was honored to do.

100% of the proceeds will be donated to two charities in Detroit, which are About Money Matters for Youth and Motor City Blight Busters, CNN Money reported.

The former promotes youth's financial literacy while the latter advocates the demolition of ruined houses and other abandoned structures in Detroit.

Buffet, Berkshire Hathaway's majority owner, said that he was frankly surprised and flattered knowing that anyone would want to buy a big head his face on it. He also hopes that the two non-profit Detroit-based charities will literally benefit from his big head, MLive reported

"The Warren Buffett Big Head" measures 2 feet tall and 1 foot and 7 inches wide.
