Museum Offered Head for Shrinking

An artist has offered to donate his own head to an Oxford museum - if a collection of shrunken heads has to be returned to South America.

Ted Dewan has written to Oxford University's Pitt Rivers Museum to offer his own head for shrinking.

Wow. What a topic.

I can understand the desire to repatriate the original shrunken heads to their home countries, but if a guy wants to donate his own head to replace them, I don't see why the museum would refuse.

Are they squeamish? I'm sure that the head-shrinking process is probably stomach-turning.

I've seen museum pieces where tattoos were left behind on display, the donor having them removed after death and cured for storage, but a head?

This artist, Mr. Dewan, is one odd duck, that is for certain. I don't know if I could leave my tattoos behind, let alone my head. I know I'm dead, and don't have a use for it, but the whole idea just sort of creeps me out.

I must have mis-read. I was expecting something completely different!!

I don't see why a man can't have his head shrunk after his dead, assuming it's natural causes.

Disney's been frozen and Scotty's been to space and then lost.

Shrink him I say. shrink him.

Well it is his head, and it's not like he has any use for it after he's dead.
I say shrink it down if that's what he wants.




It's not the strangest way to be memorialized that I've heard of.
