Elegant Pirolette

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Pirolettes are made to order from you or your loved ones profile. The picture is an example only of someones elses profile.

The Elegant style is with a domed top. Elegants height varies depending on the profile. Babies and small children will start at 6+ inches and adults will be 8 to 9 inches tall.

It's made by carving your "life sized profile" into Walnut, Maple or Cherry, (your choice), to form your personalized sculpture.

Place the “Pirolette” to your face and it will match your profile. Locate it near a wall and the shadow of the "Pirolette” will be your silhouette.

Your profile captured forever in an object of art. An optical illusion of shadow and light, each one unique because it’s you!

Just take a photo of your profile by following our easy instructions that we will send to you in a PDF file!

Turn Your Head has been featured on HGTV, The Wall Street Journal, Elle, Daily Candy, Cookie magazine and invited to the "Design and Emotion" exhibition at the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe, Germany in February 2008
