In college, I saw a slide of that face that was lit in such a way as to make it look twice as maniacal as it does here (similar to the second pic). Freaked me out so good that I went & found a tiny reproduction of it in the school library and zoomed it up on the xerox so many times that the final product looked positively psychotic.

Used it as a kind of signature for many years.

    1. This is dope. But what kind of signature, you mean only the face?


    2. Don’t know If I’m going to have internets over the next couple days.
      If not, see all y’alls after April Fools 🙂


    3. @HoChunk:
      That’s amazing. I need something like that. I’ve been abusing the Pi symbol for a long time now, but it never felt quite right.




    5. This carving looks like something from The Exorcist!!
