A scaled model of the Giza pyramids – or full-size models of their pyramidions (headpieces) – accompanied by mirrors to reflect their construction from different positions.

Along with silkscreen prints of Mata Hari, Haydn and Ramses II on paper, wood and glass – all of who had been subject to post-mortem capitation (by accident, or purposefully by phrenology enthusiasts).
