A shrunken head

I've had a really great couple days creatively speaking. I feel motivated and WANT to work. Last night I completed three... THREE... projects, including this dude.

He's been sitting around here for about 2 years waiting to be completed and last night I had my way with that bad boy!

I'm pretty pleased with him. I like the age he has. That crusty dusty look was achieved with baby powder atop of wet paint. It's looks great... like aged grime and dust. 

He's made from this sort of light and foamy air dry clay that I distinctly remember hating but can't for the life of me remember the name of. I must have blocked it from memory.

Just some terrible foam clay, string, jute twine, faux fur hair, paint and baby powder and you have yourself a shrunken head that only took a bazillion years to make.

Now, he needs a name... any suggestions?
