Hoping the NEA is not involved

Via Althouse, here is the latest from the art world:

Artist plans to exhibit sculpture of Ted Williams' severed head
PHOENIX --A Connecticut artist plans to exhibit a sculpture of Boston Red Sox great Ted Williams' severed head at a New York gallery next month.

Daniel Edwards of Moosup, Conn., said the inspiration for the sculpture came to him when it was revealed that the Hall of Famer's head was removed and cryogenically frozen with his torso at Scottsdale's Alcor Life Extension Foundation.

The sculpture shows Williams resting his chin on a baseball.

"I think the piece isn't ghastly," Edwards said.

How does he achieve that effect?

I think he borrowed this idea from Futurama.
