Steampunk Mannequin Head

I have a fascination with the human head. Don't ask me why, because I wouldn't be able to tell you. But ask anyone who knows me well and they will tell you that I love hats, masks and Styrofoam heads. Right now, I have about 8 Styrofoam heads around my house that I have aquired second hand from estate sales, tag sales, flea markets and thrift stores. These heads will get a new life over the next couple of years and transform from a blank white canvas to works of art. It's been two years since the project was conceived and I just now finished my first head. The other 7 heads are about half way done and hopefully will be completed over the next 24 months. Here is a peek at the first head. I consider it to be kinda steampunkish, while friends and family find it more space age.
