Nothing says memento mori like a human skull. Saint Jerome never appears without one, and neither should you.


Now you, too, can give the gift of awareness of human frailty and the transience of life for the great bargain price of $12.50, thanks to our friends at American Science and Surplus.



This is a “life-size skull,” which seems an ironic way to put it, “made of tough foam with a hard plastic covering,” for years of contemplative enjoyment. Features a “movable composition jaw.”


“Finished to an antiqued bone-like patina for your skull-viewing pleasure.”


For study, cell, or desert-hermitage use. Vulgate and lion not included.


[Rating: 95/100]
