Benz, that head is awesome, I am more astounded with every picture you post of your carvings, sorry to sound like such a suck up, but sometimes you make me feel like I need to do the Wayne's World scene, "I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy!"

Ben-
Just want to let you know that Ole Ugly #31 arrived today, and IT'S GREAT. I couldn't be more happy with him. The carving is superb, but I'd also like to note how beautiful the color and finish is too. I'm proud to own your 1st shrunken head carving!
