Ok so I collect heads made from ceramic. glass  and rubber/plastic. I've had this idea rattling around for a while now.
I bought a 2nd hand set of narrow shelves and painted them the same colour as the wall so that they would sort of disappear. Next I got some lights and placed one glass head over each lamp. The fotos are not great but you get the idea......

So whadaya think??





The last foto is a little unclear but i took it without using the flash so you'd get more of an idea of how the colours really are. The other fotos are a little bleached out due to the flash.

Any feedback will be very much aprreciated.
I HAVE ADDED THIS FOTO WITH THE HEADS IN A MORE SYMETRICAL ORDER, MAN HEAD, THREE BUDDHA HEADS AND THEN ANOTHER MAN HEAD...........beca use of the colour mix this it the best option at the moment but I am working on it..........Gonna buy me a blue head.

Very very cool.

But you might think about alternating the Buddha heads with the others.
Then the transition wouldn't be so odd.
