The skull may be a replica but the sheep spine, porcupine quill, pig’s teeth, and squirrel skin are all too real.
A talented madman out of the U.K. hand sculpts each one of these heads out of a ceramic compound and then lacquers them thoroughly to bring out that realistic shrunken goodness. The pieces are then adorned with all kinds of real animal parts and synthetic human hair to complete the realistic look.
Whether it’s black dreadlocks or a hot pink braid, each hair style can be custom made to order.
In true to life fashion, the head measures 5.5 x 4.5 inches — so you get all the comfort of having your new friend by your side without all the bad juju that comes with the real thing.
