Slightly niche question.

I'm writing a paper on how this scene in Pippin has presented and how audiences reacted to it. It's the scene in the first act in which Pippin chats with a recently decapitated soldier. The talking head is on stage apparently separated from its body.

Of course, I've watched various online videos of both amateur and professional productions but I'm keen to hear about productions you've seen/been part of, what effect was used and how well you think it worked. Thanks!
