LOVE ... Heads, Buddhas, Busts and the like

I've been accused of having too many "heads" in my house, but I'm drawn to them. Something so interesting about them as accessories, don't you think?


  1. I agree, they are an 'interesting accessory', however I have never owned one.

    With respect to having too many heads; you know what they say Artie "two heads are better than one". ºÜº

    Hugs to you my friend and have a great day! -Brenda-

  2. I agree with you, Artie. I currently have five in my home -- a French bronze, an early 20th century art nouveau plaster, a Thai goddess, a 19th century marble bas relief and a contemporary plaster bas relief -- and I am always on the look out for more.

  3. Hi,
    I just bought an antique bust of a yound maiden from a flea market. They said it came fro an old home. There is writing on her shoulder but i can not make out what the signature says? It also has horse hair in the plaster when i turn it over and look up into the bottom of the piece. the overall color of the piece is a very light sand color. Can you tell me how old this bust may be and was that common for them to have horse hair in the plaster?
    Thanks and i love this blog!
