Some skulls just seem happier than others. Maybe its the colors If you’d like to see some more cool anatomy, this previous  blog shows my favorite skeletons and human insides from a 1904 Encyclopedia Brittanica.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
