Not quite alive, not really dead;
a spirit lives inside this shrunken head.
It speaks of truths (and a few lies),
but the riddles it offers are quite the prize.
So should you meet one on your path,
do not hesitate to ask.
With this shrunken head figure I tried to go for a more realistic style than the ones I’ve previously made. I switched from Fimo clay to Super Sculpey, which was easier to work with and allowed me to add more detail. The jewellery and feather hair are old materials that I repurposed for this project.
