Chinese Demon Bust

This piece from 5th Century China would feel at home in a Wes Craven film.  The eyes are amazingly powerful.  The tattoo illustrations are very faded, but the original detail must have been awesome.

Technical: Nikon D700, Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8, ISO 1600, f/4.5 @ 1/40s.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 3 Beta 2 and the Nik Suite of tools.  I've been reading some negative criticism about the bokeh for this lens, but I think it is actually very good.
