Mimir is an interesting figure. I (from my own interpretations and personal religious views) believe Mimir to be the embodiment of Ymir's thoughts, or at least one of them given shape after his demise (the others I would say could be the Norns and a few of the witches like Gulveig and Angrbroda). Truly do I wish there was some detailed script that spoke of the War between Vanaheim and Asgard as I would love to know why exactly the Vana decapitated Mimir (besides the madness cursed on them).
That aside, I love how you make the head preserved rather than fully fleshed, it gives the sense that Mimir's head is an old artifact that Odin keeps close.
