28 Daring Decapitations

From Decapitated Clothing Ads to Headless Fashion Campagins

— April 27, 2011 — Art & Design
There's a good chance that heads will literally roll after checking out all of these daring decapitations. The decapitation, once a symbol of revolutionary France, has now been adopted by artists, designers and photographers to give their works a darker and more brutal edge.

Using decapitation as a theme or inspiration for any work is risky to say the least. Headless figures run the chance of scaring the hell out of people and turning them away before they even get a chance to understand that what they're looking at. On the other hand, headless figures can spice up the mundane and ordinary, from fashion photo shoots to advertisements. If you're in the mood to see some headless advertising, art and photo shoots, then check out all of these daring decapitations.
