Coconut Heads

The hallowed tradition of carving faces into coconuts is alive and well in Interzone. I spied these specimens on John's Pass recently.

Back in my rovin' ramblin' rogueish antique-dealer years, I used to collect old 50s/60s/70s examples of these tourist-trap trinkets. Often they'd have the hotel, resort or island they came from carved into the back or labeled with a sticker on the bottom. Nowadays these once-sought-after souvenirs are easily obtained on eBay and Etsy.
