This is said to be the severed head of St Vitalis of Assisi, the patron saint of genital disease who was believed to miraculously heal those suffering from bladder or genital disorders upon his death in 1370. It was up for auction in 2011.
When Hans Langseth died in 1927, his world record beard had reached a length of 18.5 feet. Upon his death, his relatives cut off 17.5 feet of it and donated it to the Smithsonian. They decided to leave one foot of beard intact because it wouldn’t be right to put Hans in his grave clean-shaven.
