Very interesting thread here. The Idol still amazes people after all these years and runs.
That thing represents everything we got into prop collecting for in the first place.
Just for the sake of reference, here are some pictures of my glass-eyed 'STELTER CREATIVE' Fertility Idol that I purchased from Jeffrey Stelter earlier this year, (alongside a couple of Movie Screencaps of the Original Hero-Idol for comparison.)

I thought that the sskunky run, with the glass eyes and removable hair plate, was also connected to a screen used idol?
There are a lot of rpf versions to keep track of tho, and I've owned a few!
I'm seeing major differences in the mouth on that Stelter idol compared to the screen idol you are comparing it to. Nice but not really accurate. There are so many out there.
I have permission from Gobler to mould and cast his idol. But even the Gobler needs work done to it to make it perfect. The baby in particular.
Here are some pics of the Ines we did some years back.

Here's my sskunky idol. Please pardon the "googly eyes" look - the idols shipped with the eyes separate... it was up to the recipients to install them. Obviously I didn't get them 100% correctly aligned - they fit kinda' snug in their sockets and I never did get around to knocking them back out to try again. One of these days...

My understanding at the time was that the adjustments were made to the mouth to bring it closer to the shape of the hero idol.
And here's a close-up of the baby face for ya...

in the very near future there will be an offering here from a well respected prop maker, and I am extremely excited to see how his has turned out! I am really hoping it will be the most SA idol offered to date.
