I am starting this post after looking and reading those that have come before, some of which were about what place heads have in the tiki pantheon, well I like to believe that art is art for arts sake. And with some of the great peices done by Sam G, and Benzart I wanted to start a new thread that was just for Shrunken Head art of any kind, so if you have something please add it and to everyone else enjoy the heads.


Greg Smith used to do these and sell them through ebay, sadly I do not have any of the pictures saved from the more elaborate heads he did. I checked to see if he had any on ebay but he did not. The ones I have pictured are the ones he was going to do for me and charge $35.00 for. I still wish I would have gotten it, it is a real head turner to see.

That's a cool shrunken head, TT. I'd like to see the others. For the record, here are my 2 thus far:

Show 'em off, Barnett. Something tells me you're hiding more killer pieces!

How'd you know, Sam? Weird thing is, I've done bunches, but I don't seem to have many pics to prove it.

Hey, I even know what MDO is (or duraply - what is it "maximum density overlay" or something?) 1/2 or 3/8 in. thickness, good on 1 or 2 sides! I think we have pretty much the same background...

Looks like we do have similar backgrounds. I'm a sign painter, by trade, but I've branched out into pinstriping, wall art (MDO cut outs), t-shirts, etc.

Hopefully we'll see some more posts on this thread...I have a weird facination with shrunken heads and similar images!

Benzart, I remember that title for a piece but for the life of me, I can't remember what that piece looked like! Usually I don't post many pics because I'm too floored by all the cool art everyone else posts!

here's one more...a friend of mine did this poster for a show we were in. I did the "from around the world" lettering...but the rest of the poster is all Mig Kokinda...

I should mention that Mig does his posters a bit differently...they're all hand cut stencils and spray paint! On this particular poster he did screen the black, but everything else is done in layers, from hand cut stencils. The guy amazes me...way too much patience. I've seen him hand cut all the lettering on some of his posters...it's key-ray-zee!!
