Mercury's Universal Head Case by mythfits Mercury's Universal Head Case by mythfits
Master Mercury's Universal Head Case

Joshua S. Levin, April 2008
Mixed Media Sculpture (painting, construction, sculpting, and assemblage)

It may come as no surprise, but Master Murcury's Universal Head Case is both too big and too small to get into proper perspective. I find that it's best to just put the thing on and remember what it felt like before the myth fit.

Much is hidden at this scale, please dive a bit further into the microcosmic details here: [link]

From suggestor: "Mercury's Universal Head Case by *mythfits looks amazing as a whole piece, it is also full of loads of squiggly and amazing details. Every time I look at it, I notice something new! It also has an awesome name." ( Suggested by StrangeComet and Featured by Thebuild )

simply amazing.... from first glane at the small thumbnail picture, it looks like a really wickedly done model of a pirate's ship..... yet once i clicked on the picture, and i came to see it in all its glory, i lost my breath for a second.... this is soooo creative and such attention to detail.... oh so wonderful, the bronzy-browns, the vivid reds, oranges, and yellows.... oh the details, so nicely done..... awesome work!!!

:O My dear god! Even though I've read the description and get that it's some kind of whacky hat, my mind keeps going "What IS that?!"

I cant begin to imagine the work that went into this, (or where you got everything) but I now have a strong desire to make my own crazy hat. :|
