dead skin mask

 

Browsing through the web for more Ed Gein info came across a band called Slayer who wrote a song inspired by Gein. Here i share with you the lyrics:

(Jeff Hanneman/Tom Araya)
[talking]
How I’ve waited for you to come
Ive been here all alone
And now that you’ve arrived
Please stay awhile
And i promise i wont keep you long
I’ll keep you forever

Graze the skin with my finger tips
The brush of dead cold flesh appease the means
Provoking images delicate features so smooth
A pleasant fragrance in the light of the moon

CHORUS
Dance with the dead in my dreams
Listen to their hallowed screams
The dead have taken my soul
Temptation’s lost all control

Simple smiles elude psychotic eyes
Lose all mind control rationale declines
Empty eyes enslave the creations
Of placid faces and lifeless pageants

In the depths of a mind insane
Fantasy and reality are the same

Graze the skin with my finger tips
The brush of dead warm flesh pacifies the means
Incised members ornaments on my being
Adulating the skin before me

Simple smiles elude psychotic eyes
Lose all mind control rationale declines
Empty eyes enslave the creations
Of placid faces and lifeless pageants

CHORUS

Here also i found another tribute to the MAster serial killer, a selection of Halloween props-including Gein’s Cereal bowl skull. I’m thinking of maybe getting one, as a cereal addict-ive been known to kill for a bowl…:P

Having made a rough layout for the victim painting i havent quite made up my mind about the type of paint to use. I had briefly thought to use ‘food’ as well as or in place of actual ‘paint’. Melted licorice as the background and havent really thought about the figure. Although i like the smell/taste aspect to this piece, id worry about the longevity to this new media. How would it affect its value etc.
I should of course experiment first to work out these questions before working on such a large size.

That reminds me i should try to remake my Necklace of ears as written by a policeman of things he had found on his murder investigation casebook.

Listening to – Alexisonfire
Reading – High Fidelity
Eating – Licorice
