Everywhere you look in this home you see disembodied heads. In the living room…
In the dining room…
Even in the hallway…
Well, until you hit the home theater. It’s… um… different…
The busts are of Greek and Roman origin. Some are even of famous philosophers. But the theater is an Egyptian tomb reborn… with a dozen gold
thrones seats. And a totally creepy black obelisk.
Even so, the Egyptian theater may not sport the weirdest decor. At least Greek, Roman, and Egyptian are all ancient. But this…?
Definitely a “Wait… what?” moment. I dunno, maybe the dolls count as sorta busts?
I swear I’ve seen a very similar black obelisk with an eye before. Very possibly as an illustration to something from D&D or some fantasy novel … which means this memory is likely 30 years old.
@GFW: Greetings, GFW! Welcome aboard!! Hope you join us frequently from here on. :)
I can totally see the obelisk being from a D&D game. But the moment I read your comment, for some crazy reason (not really), Aleister Crowley came to mind. If ever there was a guy who could make anything esoteric seem creepy as hell, it was him.
This is a great companion home to the one we saw a couple months ago that had the Parthenon out back.
The only thing that keeps coming to mind as I look through these photos is the idea that the people here really, really wanted to get a head in life.
As a matter of fact, I live here and do too find the heads unique. If only you knew how much each of those is worth, you wouldn’t be making fun of it because you’d be sitting in a yacht doing literally anything else but bashing people’s family homes. Our home is beautiful and you should feel bad about bashing others homes. Feel free to put some pictures of your home up so others can leave their unsolicited opinions :))
