OK so I have been moaning loads about the lack of decent Christmas tree decorations in the UK – but I have to say that Paperchase has come up trumps with these great skulls which come in pink and black (excuse my shit photograph).
All of this anatomical inspired furniture is from The Vanita collection by Vladi Rapaport – a skull chair, spine inspired light and brain footstool are the triptych of anatomical brilliance.
Great skull money bank from Urban Outfitters (US) – who are also offering great mustache Christmas tree ornaments…
This human (yes REAL) skull shop specializing in unusual specimens is now closed – but that said he has left the pictures up so we can view them. Macabre but absolutely fascinating Halloween reading.
Syphillis ravaged skull
Synostosis Skull (also known as alien)
Golfball dent (sold)
This skull contains a golfball-sized indentation in the forehead, as well as minor distorions all over the cranium. This could be from either a birth defect or from a severe traumatic injury such as nearly being beaten to death — luckily the victim survived, but it healed, leaving a record.
