A sculpt inspired by Guillermo del Toro's creature design in Pans Labyrinth. After studying the script I decided I wanted to similarly explore combining human and animal characteristics to produce a humanoid character, and went on to create an aardvark/human hybrid.
I later reimagined this head to be served during the dinner scene in the film. I placed it on a platter and surrounded it with canapés (also made from wax), as if it was ready to be eaten.
