Bushy and Baldy

"Baldy" Shrunken Head
The boys have been separated into individual pieces, so they can hang on either side of a painted piece down at the Shenandoah Arts Center in Winchester VA. I placed each on a piece of curly maple with natural edging and a hand planed chamfer edging. They're offered for $300 each at the gallery, or $450 for both through this special blog posting.

Each is sculpted from Super Sculpy, with bamboo, bone, shells and various stones from my wife's jewelry box.... no tattling on me. Bushy sports yards and yards of leather chord, commonly used on necklaces and bracelets. I lovingly shoved each strand into each follicle hole with a dab of super glue. Each shrunken head is mounted via bamboo pins to an 8 x 5.5 inch piece of curly maple, signed and dated on front and back, with keyhole routed into the back for hanging on the wall.

They need a good spooky home.
