Trophy heads of fanciful Seussian creatures


On DeviantArt, thebiscuitboy showcases his "zoological nonsense" creations, trophy-heads of fanciful creatures inspired by Dr Seuss. These are really fantastic (if a little disturbing).

    Dr. Seuss himself made trophy head sculptures of his whimsical creatures.
    I saw them on display in a gallery in Sausalito. 

  2. The disturbing factor is ratcheted up a notch with that lighting.

    Several years ago I bought a copy of The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss, and I think the sculptures were the most breathtaking things shown therein. If I had real money, I would gladly pay it for one of these objets d’art!

    I saw these, or similar, at a Seuss gallery on Geary in San Francisco, along with a lot of prints and originals.

    This is not just a “little” disturbing; this is a lot disturbing. I’d much rather have miniatures of the whole creature rather than just the heads. Of course, I understand the subsequent dioramas that could be created might be disturbing to others.

    seems really creepy and kinda contradictory that seuss would “mount,” the heads of his creatures on plaques, liked hunted animals…  where’s the lorax head on a slice of endangered truffula wood?  however you can make a buck…
