For the last few months I"ve been noticing busts, sculptured ones that is. On blogs, in design stores and in rooms.

Love the one on the left with the coral necklace, not only is it a beautiful piece of sculpture, it offers a gorgeous way to display favorite jewelry. (Image via Blueprint Jan.08, photographer Jim Franco)

The two below are from my visits to Chicago's Jayson Home & Garden and Mecox Gardens. The large Zeus sculpture from Mecox is suitable for outdoors.

The adorned bust below is from the Spring '07 Washington Design Showhouse in the Palm Beach powder room designed by Tricia Huntley. I believe that necklace qualifies as a "statement piece." Love it. (Interior Design: Tricia Huntley/Huntley & Co.)

These two busts available at Wandrlust
