Eduardo Paolozzi, Kardinal Syn, 1984

From the Tate Gallery:

The fragmented or sectioned head has been a theme in Paolozzi”s sculpture since Plaster for Mr Cruikshank, on display in the adjoining gallery. This work, Kardinal Syn, uses facial features derived from shop window dummies. The twine wound round the lower jaw of its battered and deformed head hints at violence and physical restraint, while the comic word play of the title adds a note of black humour.
