Unusual Carved BIG HEAD figure


As a collector sometimes you just have to buy even if you don’t know why and such is the case with this head I am going to show you today.

According to the fellow I purchased this head from, he was originally carved for a now defunct Las Vegas casino and was mounted so that he could talk to people as they passed by. I am not sure if he was over a doorway or on a wall or even possibly on the top of a machine, but his mouth was operated by a servo and electricity.

He is 13″ tall and 10″ wide and 8″ deep, Paint is all original,

The head is carved of basswood and when I saw him I knew I had to have him for the Ventriloquist Central Collection. He is just unusual enough to warrant membership in my special club.
