My entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge is a photo I took when we visited The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow a couple of months ago. The Museum closed its doors in 2003 for a three-year remodeling project. When it opened again in 2006 visitors were surprised to see fifty heads hanging from the ceiling of the museum’s East Court. Fifty heads but only a half dozen different expressions. Some people think they are a little creepy or a little weird. But everybody looks and then they look again. The art work called Floating Heads was created by Scottish artist Sophy Caves and it has become the most popular display in Kelvingrove these last ten years.
