Endlessly thrilling! Endlessly terrifying! Endlessly inspiring!

Over this past year I came across some very ingenious, very creative skull images from around the world. Visit my blog every day throughout October to enjoy the entire collection. By Halloween you’ll be up to your skull in skulls!  Ooooo! Indiana Jones mind-shiver!!! Here’s an early sample. Click the photos to see details.

The Ambassadors by Hans Holbeing the YoungerYou’re probably familiar with the slant art anamorphic skull in Hans Holbein the Younger’s 1533 painting “The Ambassadors”. You know one has to view that gray smear on the floor from a certain angle to make it reform into a recognizable skull. In his homage to Holbein, Virginia artist Noah Scalin cleverly updated the concept using broken and obsolete VHS tapes to delight us all with his appropriately titled “Dead Media”.
