Whew, this was a challenging theme. Looked on Google Images and found this antique phrenology head, carved from wood circa 1900. This was probably during the heyday of the American phrenology craze.
Don't you love those big, sad eyes. I think she misses her hair...
The textures are my own, the alphabet is something I use often, the owl is from the Graphics Fairy.
Thanks for visiting
I LOVE THIS FELLOW! (Interesting you think it's a she) The eyes are so soulful, and the addition of the wise owl is a perfect touch! APPLAUSE for this one!ReplyDelete

Wow! This is very dramatic and beautiful too. I love the gold colouring and the layering through the head. He (or she) doesn't look very happy about it all. Love the owl . He is the perfect touch. Great artwork, Linda.ReplyDelete
