more dali! - the lady skull

After the earlier post about Dali, it got me a thinking (always a bad thing) about his lady skull. I'll rephrase that. The top picture is of Salvador Dali and his skull made up of women, from a photograph by Philippe Halsman (Dali Skull - 1951).  The guy (Dali) was a genius.
It's been much copied, and two of the examples are above. One is self evidently from 'The Descent', while the other is from 'Silence of the Lambs'.
Don't forget though, Silence of the Lambs is a much, much better film.
