Shrunken Heads Of the Deep

Shrunken Heads Of the Deep

A sytrofoam head (left) provided by the Clallam Bay School, Washington was taken down to ~9500 ft. It stands next to a "normal sized" styrofoam head designed by Tracie Barry, a previous VISIONS' student. At this depth, the pressure of the overlying ocean is almost 300 times that on land.
