I've been looking for you because that skull seems familiar but can't place it. :(

So my suggestion - MAKE one! Cardboard, latex house paint and glue (like liquid nails or whatever decent cheap glue you can find for a trigger caulk gun).

^ this is a flat portrait but using pieces of contoured cardboard to create depth/definition of the face. If you plan it out LARGE, you should be able to come up with a really awesome version for a skull face and paint it up well using latex paint and/or a base layer of drylok (which should help seal it from weather unless it gets absolutely drenched)

Or our old favorite: pink/blue insulation foam!

being up that high you could probably just cut and paint a piece of plywood. With the proper shading techniques it would be hard to tell it's a flat board. If a little dimension is what you are after, glue some foam to that same piece of ply. ;)
