The Golden Tiki added to its Cabinet of Curiosities Wednesday night by unveiling celebrity magician Murray Sawchuck’s shrunken head. Managing Partner Branden Powers and The Baron of the Universe, former contestant on “America’s Got Talent,” were on hand to present the honor to the celebrity magician, comedian, and host of family-friendly “Murray the Magician” show at Planet Hollywood.
“This is very cool. Thank you to The Golden Tiki,” said Sawchuck. “It’s great to be amongst the ranks of Carrot Top and Robin Leach and all the other shrunken heads who have come before me.”
Said Powers, “We’re excited to add Murray’s head to our wall. These heads keep getting better and better, and it’s an honor have these Las Vegas icons be a part of The Golden Tiki tradition. ”
Sawchuck’s head was crafted over a four week process by Smithsonian artist Terry Barr, and is the seventh in a series of celebrity shrunken heads on display at Vegas’ iconic Tiki revival bar. Previous shrunken heads include Marky Ramone of The Ramones, Carrot Top, Frank Marino, Robin Leach, Norm Clarke and Vinnie Paul.
