Traditional mounted taxidermy is often deer heads. In recent years, heads and antlers made from cardboard and other materials emerged. Now...meet the mounted human head. The featured head is a 1920's criminal mugshot made from reclaimed wood. The product description states that you can order your own custom profile as well.

I don't know about you, but having a mounted human head (even if only made from wood) in my home is a little freaky. If you were to order a custom profile, would you order a profile of yourself, a friend, or family member? On the other hand, maybe you would want to order a profile of your ex-boyfriend as a twisted expression of your feelings for him.

I am very curious to see if the concept of mounting faux human heads catches on. Do you love it or are you completely weirded out?
