That is so awesome!  You should sell them, I bet they'd be a big hit.

ch-ch-cha-chia...  Grin

For a second I thought the bird seed looked like maggots... creepy, but super ace at the same time!

I love it. I thought you were going to put out for the birds and then you would have he lovely image of birds devouring a human skull.

Hi all thanks for the great comments!
I didnt think so many people would think it looked like maggots, interesting.
My plan was to put it out in the garden, but I used glue to stick the seed together and then I worried Id be poisoning the birds, but yes I really liked the idea of having a bird standing on the skull pecking away.  Grin
re how did I stick the seed on, the whole head is solid seed. The last couple of pics show it coming out of a  piece of the mould.
Originally I made a clay skull, made a plaster mould in three parts, tied the mould together, and filled with birdseed mixed with originally clag and then PVA glue. Left it for a few days, then untied the mould and took the skull out.
Im taking it into tafe on Wednesday, but Im thinking of making another more bird friendly version with seed and peanut butter, or egg white to hold it together.
I need to research more.
regards

This is really cool, and I think you should do one with suet or something and put it out for the birds!

That would be a very unusual, bizarre photo - garden birds eating a skull - thats what I would do:)
