'The Skull' is an ode to contemplation or a meditation on the mysteries that lie within. Revered by man since he appeared on Earth, the skull embraces all things mysterious: The other side, of everything. We are here, this side; then we are not— we’re somewhere else, the other side. To us, skulls are just downright cool!


Conversation Sparker:

  • There is only one bone in the skull that is movable and it is the jaw bone or mandible.
  • In a forensic study, you can tell if the difference between a female skull and a male skull. Make skulls are heavier, larger, and thicker than the female skulls. The skull of a female is rounded and less protruded mandible.
  • An average of 785 pounds is needed to crush a human skull.
  • A skull with crossbones is used as a universal symbol of poison or death.
