the human head

This sculpture I saw in Venice, Italy;  it was placed at the entrance of a church.  It is meant to have ugly or scary features to scare away bad spirits from entering the church.  I believe it is a stylized piece of work because it does not represent an actual person.  The sculpture contains simplified features and could be anyone.  It followed a set of rules to serve a particular purpose (being to scare spirits).  It does not depict an actual person.
