Yard Skull

This is a fiberglass skull a bit over 5 feet tall. It has a long history behind it.

My husband has owned it for about 17 yrs. I married the owner 11 yrs ago, so the skull came with him. Anyone is welcome to stop by. We get a lot of passersby who stop and take pictures of it. Get out and take each others' picture beside it!
