Still Life With Mummified Head

"Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory."
I don't think "cinematic" really does this particular piece from Doe & Hope justice.  As you can see, nothing brings a room together like an upscale mummified human head.    The objet d'art itself was created by special effects artist Alan Friswell for an unproduced film.  Browse the rest of the gallery to enjoy a bizarre mix of old money pretentiousness and Rob Zombie interior design aesthetics.
