That really is cool, pariartspaul. Those old 70's Vincent Price apple-heads are nothing compared to that!

Thanks too, cheekytiki...

Ditto. My sentiments exactly.

Here's a little scene with a shrunken head in a corner of our backyard jungle. I made the shrunken head maybe 10 years ago. It's sculpted of super sculpey over aluminum foil. Painted with acrylic and then it has a sprayed on urethane finish. You can't see it too well in the photo but the eyebrow hair was poked in before I baked it. Also there is string sewn in on the lips. Creepy hummmm. The hair is part of a cheap wig from a novelty store. I forgot where I got the beads, maybe Michael's. Anyway, it's held up just fine these past 10 years outside, and in freezing winters too! It was fun to make. The skulls are painted plastic models.

Virani that is great.

I love this photo. I especially like the the way the mouth is sewn together.

This is the text that was with this pciture. "The practice of shrinking heads was once common amongst the Jivaro Indians of Ecuador. It was a ritual that had been handed down through generations. The heads of slain warriors were valued as trophies or symbols of bravery. When a fighter killed his enemy, the victim's head was removed. The skin was then peeled away from the skull and hot stones and sand were poured into the cavity. The head was sewn shut and boiled in herbs until it had shrunk to the size of a fist. Ceremonial dances, feasts and songs accompanied the ritual!."

And lastly...



Hope you guys like, and yes I have too much free time, but some cool stuff here I thought, would be cool to see what all of you kick ass artists would do with these images in your style.

Barnet right click on the picture and it will give you the url and you can do a google on it then. I found all of these after looking through about 25 pages of google images for the sweetest ones. PO'd over the fact that no matter what I did I could not get those couple to show up.
