I had a front view as well but some how it got lost in the email from my camera to computer.

Do you get the idea of the size of this thing with the hands holding it?

It is made out of a stunning loose weave in the straw, lace and dried flowers.  Nearly brought me to tears.

It is made out of a stunning loose weave in the straw, lace and silk flowers. Nearly brought me to tears.  The silk flowers are an amazing color…they match the straw so they have the illusion of being dried flowers.

For those of you interested in how things work, the bigger crown hides a normal sized head size inside...kind of like a super big hat over top of a little hat.
