Shrunken St. Nick

Personal piece, 2017.  I've become incredibly tired of the usual Christmas icons, and so I make every attempt to squeeze more of Halloween in the Christmas season.  In this case, the shrunken head of a jolly St. Nick made as a gift for an ornament swap.  Sculpted, cast in resin, and hand painted, complete with acrylic human teeth tied to his lips. Hat was sewed and weathered and hair is layered wool.
