The Ungodly Skull Of Pacman

This biologically (and proportionately) terrifying representation of Mr. Pacman's skull gives me a strong case of the 80's arcade willies.

Put together by artist Le Gentil Garçon (in collaboration with palaeontologist François Escuillié), this sculpture uses a conceptual omnivorous bone structure to illustrate Pacman's "real world" ghost chomping capabilities.

Somewhat like a sideshow attraction, I find it difficult to look away from its oddly shaped jowles, and socketless frontal lobes.

Sadly, I am now confused as to if I should run for my life, or simply begin feeding it a medley of over-sized fruit.
