Live in Japan? Got plans for this weekend? You know, you can always put on this large, unsettling cat head.

As reported on BuzzMag and Togetter, this “Real Cat Head” will be on display starting this Saturday at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. It will be part of a larger, free exhibit that will run from April 18 to April 23 (note that the museum is closed on Monday).
