Paolo del Toro‘s (previously featured here) heads he’s making now are sculpted foam with needle felt features, “a painstaking process” that can take months to complete. He’s been working on his biggest piece so far: the head of a woman wearing a crown of flowers covered in insects, with a toad in her mouth. “It’s a goddess figure of life and death, inspired by religious sculptures from traditionally patriarchal religions, but subverts that imagery to address matriarchal themes found in witchcraft and paganism.”
