Forensic Artist Reveals the Face of That Skull-Shaped Vodka Bottle

By Adam Clark Estes on at

Ever wonder what the face might look like for that skull-shaped Crystal Head vodka bottle? Well, one Scottish forensic scientist recently found out.

Nigel Cockerton typically works on movie sets, but he decided to bring his face-making talents to the iconic vodka bottle. Treating the crystal skull like a real skull, he applied layer after layer of clay, representing muscle and cartilage, until all that was left of the bottle was the neck sticking straight out the top of a drunk, grinning man's head. Well, the glass teeth are a dead giveaway, too.

And, if the resulting face seems hard to believe to you, remember that this is the same forensic process used to create faces for historical figures like King Tut, for studying indigenous human remains, and many more. [Facebook via Neatorama]
