the_great_orbax Day 12 and the final day of the #12skullsofxmas!
This last one is a genuine #oddity and #curiosity, given as a gift from a now deceased friend.
What we have here is a genuine horned skull!
Many of you have seen the fabled 'horned man' from the old #Ripley's #believeitornot cartoons, this is the real deal.
The bone tumor growing out of the base of the skull is about the size of a thumb. Several others are starting to form on the rest of the skull but this is the largest.
Hope you all enjoyed the #12skullsofxmas and last year's #12pigsofxmas! Seasons best from the #monstersofschlock!

Today we have this giant beast skull!
This guy is huge, and has the unique anomaly of fully fused cranial sutures. I've heard of this before but never personally seen it until this specimen. I have yet to hear an explanation as to why so I'd be happy to hear if anyone knows!

Shown here is an Asmat headhunter trophy skull from New Guinea, pictured w two Bontoc headhunter axes from the Philippines atop a rhinoceros foot.
Headhunting has been practiced by indigenous tribes around the world for reasons as varied as war, magic and collecting.

the_great_orbax Day 9 of the #12skullsofxmas!
This teaching specimen came in a small box along with an articulated foot, spine and various small bones and joints from the Adam, Rouilly & Co. Osteology division. Adam, Rouilly & Co. still supplies medical charts and teaching models. The Osteology division began in 1920 and this skull dates somewhere bw then and 1972 when the company moved from Tottenham Court in London UK. Doctors, dentists and even chiropractors often had these types of teaching specimens in their offices to show patients. Modern mold-making and casting techniques have replaced genuine bone specimens like this w plastic and epoxy reproductions which are much cheaper and do not carry the 'stigma' often associated w real specimens.

the_embalmers_closet Box of human bones, its quite humbling to think that a once majestic human being full of love and intelligence can be reduced to a lowly box of used calcium, I wonder if they ever thought that this would be their fate..I wonder if the people who collect human bones think about that..or am I just thinking too much..:| #humanskeleton #humanremains #humanbones #skeleton #oddities #medicaloddities 1w
  •   the_embalmers_closet I think it would be very hard not too, Its in each of us to put ourselves in there shies son to say and wonder about their lives, it might be one reason we bring them into our homes... 7d
  •   drjpermanent They have found a good home with you sir 7d
  •   the_embalmers_closet Thank you very much..@drjpermanent 6d
  •   goodrich_ink @the_embalmers_closet its a very humbling experience witnessing our own mortality. I feel the human in this box would be proud if they knew you respected them enough to ask these questions. 6d
  •   the_embalmers_closet I hope they would too, its an Honor to be able to be the custodian of these pieces, respect is something I strive for ..@goodrich_ink 6d
  •   goodrich_ink @the_embalmers_closet I think the same thing when I look at my animal skulls in my collection. I have a juvenile horse skull that was put down with a bullet to the head and I wonder what got it to that point, what color was its fur, what was its personality. Its truly amazing seeing someone set respect as a priority, rather than just collecting skulls because they're "badass" 6d
  •   the_embalmers_closet A appreciate the kind words, and i m glad to see so many others giving respect in this manner...:) @goodrich_ink 6d
  •   thervahereafter That's super cool! 6d

the_great_orbax Day 8 in the #12skullsofxmas!

This teaching specimen is of a child or small woman. The calvarium cut is made as a regular part of most autopsies as a means of removing the brain.
The skull itself is waxed, which from what I understand is fairly common for older teaching skulls, in order to protect the porous bone while it is being handled.
