Let’s cut right to the questionable chase: this is a sculpture (or mold) of artist Marc Quinn’s head made from 4.5 liters of his own frozen blood. Really gets you in that Halloween spirit, doesn’t it? No, not so much.

The blood is taken from this own body over a period of five months. The work is then repeated every five years to establish a unique record of the artist aging.

Now I’m not here to judge art, but that seems pretty sick. Plus, what if the power goes out on your freezer while you’re away on vacation? How do you explain the 4.5 liter bloodstain in your garage? You hunt deer. That was a freebie — next time, you owe me.
