Skulls

Dali_Skull_of_Zurbaran.jpg

I have been sketching characters for a new project and consequently have been after reference pictures for objects and such. An image search for skulls turned up "The Skull of Zurbarán" (above) and with it an impressive Virtual Dali collection. Not terribly useful for sketching but quite excellent for thinking with.

Along the same lines: The hanging coffins of Sagada, the cult of the dead at Fontanelle Cemetary, the Sedlec Ossuary and the Capuchin catacombs at Palermo.

Unrelated - except skullishly - but impressive: This badass Santiago Choppers Skull Helmet and a handy phrenology helmet.
