[BONUS] 420. Rosalind Franklin's Skull

One of the diptychs from my new Natural Selection portrait series which is on display at Krause Gallery in NYC. The exhibition closes tomorrow, so don't miss out if you're in the area!
Rosalind Franklin & Skull made from chandelier crystals by Noah Scalin.

Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958): primarily known for her work as an x-ray crystallographer, made a key discovery that led to the modern understanding of the structure of DNA. However her work was used without permission or credit and she died without Nobel Prize recognition.
