I visited one of my favorite places yesterday, Valley Vintage, which is located in West Orange and has antiques, hard-to-find collectibles, and unique objects of art. I found myself spending a long time looking around yesterday, and wanted to share something that mystified me … what is this thing? Has anyone ever seen something like this? Scroll down for more …

I’m not sure whether I would call this a sculpture, or folk art, or a “curio,” which is defined as “something (such as a decorative object) considered novel, rare, or bizarre.” It certainly qualifies as that, as we have 5 sculpted baby heads, but what looks like a skull in the middle – see some details below. If you have any thoughts you want to share, or have seen something like this before, please share in the comments section below.
