Queen Anne's Skull

Making skull art can be a family affair, and it turns out that Skull-A-Day friend and Mütter Museum curator, Anna Dhody, comes from a from a line of skull lovers. Her mother, Joanne Dhody, found a way to "tat" Queen Anne's lace into a skull for us to share.

The delicate petals seem to be an exact opposite of the hardened bony structure that we usually associate with the skull. Perhaps Joanne is helping us to remember how delicate our craniums can be. Life's breezes can be disruptive to our composure. Take this day to arrange yourself and find peace in your skull. Thanks, Joanne!
