    I think this artist's work has been featured in FT a while back, mostly around his vampire killing kits and preserved werewolf's foetus's ... if it's the same guy, I can't remember which issue this was in sorry but it's beautiful work.

    The story behind Thomas Merrylin is fun.

    And the entire collection can be viewed online now....along with the full story.

    SPECIMENS

    Completely agree Swifty this is an elaborate Fortean art exhibition...shame it's not public.

    These are impressive, but they will confuse some, who will simply accept them as as being real, rather than understanding they are effectively 1:1 scale suprarealistic artworks, facsimile relics from a parallel unreality.

    I'm reminded, indirectly, of papercraft skulls...[​IMG]

    Well, I've tried papercraft, way back. And it was weirdly relaxing. Not now, because all I do is work, constantly.

    Never made a paper skull, myself, yet....but it's got to be worth the risk of a few papercuts.....

    Just come across the Merrylinmuseum.com site via reading Youtube comments, it was the first coldish, wet afternoon we've had for months here up north and I can heartily recommend this site (apart from the odd spelling/grammar issue), it held my attention for hours ! Its very professionally done, the author I think is one 'Alex CF', but there is a short video clip on the Merrylin site attributed to Simon Lewis who also has some other video stuff online (seems to like slow-motion), see vimeo.com for a remarkable 'Worlds Biggest Jumping Spider In Slow Motion' film. Bravo !

    The Merrylin Museum put me in mind of the notion of "Pickled Punks", a "lovely" carny term for deformed fetuses in formaldehyde, though I have certainly known a few more-or-less alive individuals who might also accept such an nominative definition. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pickled_punks
