The Golden Tiki on Spring Mountain Road added to its Cabinet of Curiosities on Thursday when it unveiled Norm Clarke's shrunken head.

Managing Partner Branden Powers and Tony Felicetta of The Sharps were on hand to present the honor to the former Las Vegas Review-Journal gossip columnist.

Clarke also appears on the Morning Blend show at KTNV-TV.

"Branden's been a longtime friend of mine. I've supported him over the years, and he's supported my column," said Clarke. "I'm really honored to be among the little head crowd now at The Golden Tiki."

Clarke's head was crafted over a four week process by Smithsonian artist Terry Barr, and is the fifth 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 and Robin Leach.
