Damn, I think you're right.
We should be checking the missing persons reports around Thor's neighborhood!

OK..per requested I am posting a few more of the heads here in progress. I will be working long hours to finish as many as I can close to a total of 20. What I am doing is responding to feedback here where there are some much higher end heads and some that are very simple and I can offer for a little less. This would be the case in a headhunters smoke hut anyway. Some heads would be a trophy, more elaborate if the victim was of higher tribal rank. Others would be more simple and less adorn.

These are turning out to be a LOT of hours of work. I have become VERY meticulous as to the details and I don't even want to add up the time per profit on these. But this is my passion once a year. I will be fully back to painting after Oasis. Because of this, it's not possible to do more heads after Oasis for special orders. I would take 6 months or more to find pockets of time I could devote to these other than next summer. One guy had to wait almost 9 months last year and I just don't want to do that to anyone.

Here's the next line-up. I have gotten a lot of PM's regarding pre-buying a particular head made as seen here. I am going to just number these in photos so that if someone wants a certain one and commits, it will be reserved. Again, it's first to show serious interest and payment..first serve. The first two posted earlier this week are, Lip plate Suya #1 and skewer lip #2. # 1 is already reserved. I also have at least 5 people asking to reserve one but waiting to see more pics. Remember to respond on this thread if you leave a PM and want me to check. I only "sign in" here once every day or two and just peek at thread response quickly several times a day. Ok......on we go!
Here's a line up! Some still need feathers or twine details or neck rings. As a side note..if anyone pre-buys and asks for a couple details I have not put on the head ass pictured I am happy to add a few things.


#3 Warrior given face paint. Symbolizes the skull as possessed now by the victor.


#4 Crowned warrior SOLD/RESERVED


#5 last years mold with this year's upgrades


#6 Ebony finish Suya. Grey feathers are just set here to see color. Pitch beads and grey and red feathers will accent this really deep ebonized Tsantsa.



#7 Suya lip plate variation SOLD/RESERVED




#8 The "Head Case" This is a head that I took many extra hours on with fine brushes and detailing where it is absolutely shocking. It gives the feel of an old museum relic in a themed glass case. It will have a low watt light in the top that beautifully illuminates every hair and subtle pore. The hair is real human hair acquired from a wig shop and carefully attached to this head. I showed this to a few friends yesterday who wouldn't leave the thing alone. One said, "It is the most wonderfully disturbing oddity I have ever seen! Price is set at $950.00 for this and I guarantee one will agree it is worth every cent if you want a center piece to a Tiki bar or establishment. I am thinking of putting a small aged little label inside like a museum would have done 50 years ago...we'll see.

More to come.......I am back to my lab. Will check the thread on and off today.
