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.

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

    @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.

    This carving looks like something from The Exorcist!!
