The mannequin heads as vases are often used as table centerpieces. Cheaper than a glass vase, lighter to transport plus it don’t break as easily.
This one reminds me of a cross between Frida Kahlo and Carmen Miranda.
Sometimes people paint the styrofoam head to give the display a more dramatic effect.
And sometimes the styrofoam heads are turned into hypertufa – mix of peat moss, perlite and Portland concrete – so they can be placed outside.
And male styrofoam heads as vases are becoming as popular as the female ones.
