The “Shrunken Head Gum” of Copernicus Johnson


  • Title: “Shrunken Head Gum”
  • Media: Gum. La Fiesta de la Victoria.
  • Submitted by: Copernicus Johnson
  • A smattering of gum on a doorstep in suburbia that strangely resembles a shrunken head. CJ says "It used to look more like an alien head, but as the months have gone by it's darkened into this."... If you look closely, it appears as if the "eye" on the left is hanging out of its socket.

    This is a tough one, Charlotte. It was one of the first anomalies and is, admittedly, a bit subtle. Think of the two dark spots in the middle as eyes (the one on the left of the image kind of looks like it’s hanging out of the eye socket a bit). To better orient your interpretation, the “face” is looking downwards and to the right of the image. See it yet?
