I worked on a head last night for a sculpture I'm building and I realized it looked very much like a hood ornament in shape and 'direction'...
unplanned of course; thought I'd look into it a little bit.
Much like the Tall Ship mast heads I so recently posted about; these beauties are the mast heads for the land going 'vessels' of the early 20th Century.
I love the elegance and art nouveau inspiration - but I gotta say that skele-barbie dealio more than hits the mark!!
