A GNU Head

You may prefer to use the Bold GNU Head, which is the version now used by the Free Software Foundation on any new GNU-emblem items and stickers.

 [Image of the head of a GNU] 

A handsome GNU head with typical beard and smart-looking curled horns. He or she appears to be smiling contentedly with its works as of yet, but it still gazes off into the distance.

This image was the default art for pages on this website, including GNU's home page. It was also used on the front of the 1997 GNU t-shirt, and the spine of many GNU manuals.

Original image

It was drawn by Etienne Suvasa, who has also done several covers for FSF publications.
