Beauchene Skull, also known as an exploded skull, is a disarticulated human skull that has been carefully reassembled on a stand with jointed, movable parts that allow for the opening and studying of the skull as a whole or each piece individually.

Claude Beauchene the mid-1800s French anatomist  developed this method to display the anatomy of the head. Beauchene would meticulously clean a skull, separate its bones, and mount them on a stand designed to exhibit them at once individually and in context.

The concept of the exploded skull was first introduced byLeonardo da Vinci, seen in his anatomical drawings.

Recommended Reading: The Night Circus

Samantha has been going on about Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus for months, so I finally got around to reading it. It is fantastic. There will be obvious comparisons to Geek Love, to Tim Burton’s work back before he sucked, and to Neil Gaiman, but the book manages to take in all of those influence without becoming trite or genre or predictable. It is a fairy tale and a love story, and it is truly enchanting.

It will make you want a red scarf.
