Nigel Cockerton’s Contribution To The World – Vodkahead

Nigel Cockerton received a Master’s in Forensic and Medical Art from the University of Dundee, Scotland, and has also trained and worked with FBI officials in the U.S.

One day Cockerton decided to perform some forensic facial reconstruction on  a bottle of Crystal Head Vodka.

The skull-shaped bottle is based on 13 crystal heads that have been found in various regions around the world – from the American southwest to Tibet. The heads – believed to be between 5,000 and 35,000-years-old – are thought to offer spiritual power and enlightenment to those who possess them.

Mr Cockerton said the skull he reconstructed was a European female aged between 21 and 30 – although without the real fragments of teeth, he was not able to be more precise.

  1. This is wonderful! Idle curiosity, idle hands, and esoteric knowledge all combined to make something unique. The facial expression is also part and parcel of why it’s great.

    The whimsy involved reminds me of a quote about the writers/actors of The Goon Show, to the effect that “they took things to their illogical conclusion.”

    1. Then there’s also this connection:

      The Crystal Head bottle was designed with the creative spirit in mind by creative people. Together, Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander designed the iconic skull shaped bottle as a symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment.
