Hope no one finds this inappropriate. I guess it could be considered borderline obscene.

Thanks you made me smile! How in the world did you do so well on the snakes?!

haven’t you ever noticed those curly little sprigs that sprout off of grape vines? I cut them off but left the vine for the heads and hollowed them out. I drilled a bunch of holes in her bald head and left stems behind the curls to glue in the holes after some sorting and arranging.

Jim, I think it is pretty cool looking. The snakes and the concept you used to make them really neat.

I remember when I first saw Medusa in Florence Italy – Perseus stands in the plaza with his hand entwined in her hair holding her severed head out like a trophy. I was shocked to say the least.

Cool design, Jim. If I thought it wouldn’t hurt so much, I’d consider those grape vines for my own bit of cranial real estate :-)
