This bust from Paul Komoda’s “Human Pathology” series definitely looks strange. The sculpture is, in fact, of a woman suffering from Tertiary Syphilis. How lovely.

The piece was originally commissioned by the US education department who then rejected it! As a result of its rejection, you can now get castings of this morbid sculpture for around $160.
