Your art technique is full of holes!
I especially like the neck for some reason.
It looks like this man got attacked by worms, they went in small, thus the smaller holes, then they ate out the juicy insides and grew a lot while they were in there. Then they burrowed their way out again creating the bigger holes in this mans face.
There are more large holes than small ones, so we know that they bred inside his skull ant at least two of the offspring survived. :)
From his expression this man was very calm while all this happened, because most people would be distressed by such an occurrence, we must conclude that, either this man was a hard core devout follower of the Cynic philosophy, or that his facial mussels just froze up in rigor mortis when he died. His mouth would have probably fallen open when they were burrowing into his face however, so I think we can go with the first one.
Hence, I propose the title: "A Cynic Who Got Eaten By Worms."

Damn! This is the best interpretation. Sounds closest to something I might have come up with myself. Thanks for your comment!

It seems that his identity has slipped through the fractal cracks of nature!

Haha didn't think of it like that! I love some people's guesses as to what it is, they're all really different.

Very sculptural has a real 3D look to it. Now, if you could only tweak the contrast in the photo a little. :star:

The colours are a bit subdued, aren't they? I didn't really want to mess with it too much digitally because it was more or less what it looked like in real life. I think part of the reason some of the colours look so muddled are because I mixed up such a contrast: the orange and the green. Maybe I should have used an intermediary colour as well.. in any case, thanks for the input!
