This is how it works:
(1) Send us your digital photo or drawing (black & white or color) of a skull, with hair and either a hat or some other fun accessory.

We’ll even send you the photo of your skull once we’ve received it. That way, if you want to order more garments in the future, you’ll have your own reference photo to work from. And if anyone asks where you got such an awesome skull design, just send them here!**
Neanderthals were our closest relatives during most of human history. They lived in Europe and western Asia from about 230,000 to 30,000 years ago. Like us, they used tools and fire, buried their dead and probably told stories. Unlike us, they had a larger brain than ours (about 50% bigger).
Utilizing the latest technology and materials to create a high quality product!
Utilization of all the best materials available for a long lasting, beautiful finish. The finest grade of gypsum cement board is used as the canvas for your artwork. Your choice of Acrylite front protector or UV protected Plexiglas front protector. Then using the highest quality paints and sealers available we create this masterpiece to be displayed in your home or office!
The skull art is then sealed with a UV protecting coating. This will protect the artwork from fading due to sun exposure.
This is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art that will be enjoyed by you and your family for generations to come!
Hanging hardware is included along with step by step picture instructions on how to hang your skull art using simple nails or screws.*
*Since every wall is different, hanging methods may vary depending upon what will work best
I stared at the skull. It stared back.
I was sitting with a group of artists and activists from around the world at the Death Salon in Los Angeles, an annual gathering of people interested in mortality, mourning, and mortality-related art. Like many of the attendees, I was there to get ideas for my own work. The skull on the table in front of me was a diorama: inside its clear acrylic box, embedded in a cross-section of brain tissue, were two tiny insects that had been genetically engineered to glow green under UV light. As the group talked about their projects—a series of miniature models of cemeteries, plans for a “death cafe” in London—the skull glowed brightly.
A few days later I went to visit one of the artists behind the diorama. It was just after dawn when I arrived at his apartment on a hillside overlooking Long Beach. He handed me a cup of coffee, and we sat down at his kitchen table. An insect zapped against the window screen.
I wanted to know how he felt about death—about his own death and other people’s deaths—and I assumed he’d start by talking about his art project or some theory he had about adjusting our thinking about
Skull art is a nice way to show your love for someone. There are many ways to make it, and they are all creative and unique. The first step is to find a skull. It must be real, so you cannot buy one in a store. After you have found a suitable skull, you can begin your artistic journey by coloring in the front of the skull with permanent markers. You can use as many colors as you think looks good.
Another option is to get stickers that look like skulls and put them on the skull. To give your beloved skull a little life, try sticking fake hair on it with glue. You can also try decorating the inside of the skull with candy or other small items that fit inside the cranium of the skull. When completing this project, it is important to consider how comfortable you feel with using glue or other adhesives since these will probably be permanent once applied.
If you want to add something extra special to your piece, try putting glow sticks inside the cranium of the skull and then wait for them to come on at night or when you turn off the lights! This will give your skull art an even more eerie effect! If you are done with your artwork, don’t forget that displaying it means letting people
Bodies decompose. Bones left behind can still tell scientists a lot, but much is lost. Decaying flesh leaves behind stains that can still be identified with the right technique. But the most interesting part of the body – the part with all the information – is the brain.
Tissue of all kinds decays quickly, but brains decay slowly and differently. This makes them difficult to study without special equipment and expertise. To preserve brains well enough to examine their structure and chemistry, they must be pickled in a special solution or frozen in liquid nitrogen. Scientists must also make sure that no modern DNA remains, since DNA from the scientist who preserved them might contaminate evidence of what they looked like when alive hundreds or thousands of years ago.
A surprising number of scientists have preserved human brains for just this purpose. Dr. Suzana Herculano-Houzel’s research focuses on hominid brains (brains from species more closely related to humans than to other animals). She is particularly interested in how big brains are made up of smaller ones: neurons organized into modules.
Brain size varies widely between species; some have as few as 10% as many neurons as others have. Human brains have about 86 billion neurons, which makes us about average for mammals our
The key to understanding the Vikings is that they were close to their time. They don’t seem weird to us because they lived so long ago, but because we have changed so much. The people who live in the towns and villages of Scandinavia and Iceland are not Vikings; they are just people who happen to live there now.
The Viking Age—the period from about 800 to 1100 A.D.—is when the Scandinavian countries were first settled by Vikings. Most historians put it at the early end of that range; 800 is a nice round number, and 1100 works because years were usually dated from the year that Christianity was officially accepted, which happened somewhere between 1054 and 1066. (The exact date depends on how you count.)
The conventional story about why the Vikings became such great explorers is that their climate was harsh, with long winters and short growing seasons, so they had to be tough and aggressive just to survive. But that does not seem right.
In fact, their climate was milder than that of Northern Europe today, and possibly even milder than that of Southern Europe as well. There was no winter ice in the North Atlantic then, only in Greenland and Antarctica; what we think of as winter weather came mainly from storms blowing in from Siberia
Skull art has existed for centuries and is still used in many cultures and societies. Skulls are often decorated with clay paints or with feathers. The designs can also be painted on canvas or paper, and then placed on the skull. Skull art is a way of showing one’s pride in their heritage and culture. The masks are usually worn with dance ceremonies, which celebrate life and death in various ways. The masks are not used to scare others; they are a source of pride.
The history of skull art is clear in some areas but not others. For example, the Navajo have been known to use skull art for hundreds of years. This tribe had originally used real human skulls as part of their rituals. However, after missionaries had come to the area and told them that they were practicing evil rituals, they had begun using animal skulls instead. The Navajo still use the human skulls that they acquired from old rituals today; these are now considered sacred items within the community.
During World War II, more Westerners began to discover this cultural practice when soldiers were stationed overseas. In some areas, these Westerners would buy these masks from locals as a means of making money for their families. However, there was also an interest in preserving this practice; it was seen as a
