Conjoined Skulls

Rachel Quinlivan of Alabama, is back, with a painting of conjoined skulls. I'm fascinated with skeletal deformities, since I have a few myself. Conjoined ones are extreme deformities, from the cells not fully dividing for twins. The most famous conjoined twins are Thai brothers, Chang and Eng Bunker, who were attached at the chest and shared a liver. They lived to be 63, and had families. The term "Siamese Twins", comes from these two brothers being billed as when traveling with P.T. Barnum.

We want to share your skull art! Be a part of the Skull-A-Day project. Details are HERE.
