Princess Mombi's heads-Jackie wadowsky

Although this scene scared me as a kid, I remember still being very
impressed with it, not so much how it was done of course, but that
the images and idea of it were very striking to me. Lately I've been
fascinated with the extremes people will go to in order to satisfy their,
oftentimes, unhealthy obsessions which can ultimately lead to their own
destruction. Princess Mumbi's cabinet of heads shows us her obsession
with beauty as she has quite a variety of faces and looks to choose from and
and even has them on display for herself in pretty glass cases which are
numbered off like specimens.
