There're plenty of websites that do taxidermy eyes in all types, colours and sizes. Some even do commission jobs depending on what you want. I may buy some for these heads, but if I can't find exactly what I'm looking for, I will have to make them myself.

An armature in the sculpting world is a solid support to put the clay onto. If a sculptor was to create a Brachiosaurus neck for example, he would need a support of some kind (e.g.metal rod) inside to keep the clay from collapsing. It also makes sculptures more solid and possible to move around if need be. ;D

Most sculptures are molded and reproduced in another material, such as plaster or resin. The armature stays inside the original sculpt until the clay is needed for another project.
If a sculpture was done in a clay that needs to be fired to cure/harden, and hence...a mold is not required if it's to be a one off piece, then yes, the armature would stay inside but would be cut and/ or removed where it sticks out of the sculpt (the base usually).
