Skulpture

 

I shot this circular arrangement of human skulls in the basement of a church in Lima, Peru. I can’t decide if it’s just the skulls or the fact that someone took the time to design this bone arrangement that bugs me the most. It’s creepy. 

But pegging the heeby-jeeby meter, is an actual camera made from a human skull. This, courtesy of BoingBoing<http://gadgets.boingboing.net/2008/09/23/pinhole-camera-fashi.html>Artist Wayne Martin Bleger has created a working, pinhole camera/sculpture from the 150 year old skull of a thirteen year old girl.
