     History


    The Screaming Heads is the project of Peter Camani, an art teacher at Almaguin Highlands Secondary School.
    Peter has spent approximately fifteen years working on this project. His property is quite vast, 84 sculptures scattered along 310 acres and occupying both sides of the road.

    Scattered throughout his property you will find assorted screaming heads, each one standing twenty feet tall.
    For a sum of $10,000 you may have your cremated remains molded into a 20 tonne screaming head of your own.

    In addition to the screaming heads there is the Midlothian Castle. The castle, a former derelict farmhouse, is guarded by a fire-breathing dragon which sits on the chimney and emits smoke whenever the fireplace is used. Gargoyles sit atop a fence surrounding the castle.

    An Enchanted Forest will guide you past trees that seem to take on the shape of screaming heads. Here you will find claws that stick out of the ground and spider webs which have ensnared heads (or as Peter calls them, 'potential not enacted').

    Peter has continued to add to the property. There is now the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the Primeval Forest. The Primeval Forest is comprised of eighty screaming concrete trees, roughly eighteen feet (six metres) tall, with a treed ridge and fantastic sunsets as the backdrop.

    Four ponds are also on the property.
