Dead in Paris
I recently took this photo at the Le Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle. The skull's surface texture is especially fascinating: a texture which you can now study from the comfort of your cubicle! Just click on the above photo and it will enlarge to almost life-size proportions (though not quite that big).
Load time is fast. Firefox is preferred (for zooming in and out).

I like the bits of metal holding the bones together. Kind of like an organic robotic mask.

If you didn't know better, you'd dig that up and think it was a cyclops skull.

Actually, John, people did associate elephant skulls with cyclopses.
I've an equally interesting story on the origin of the griffin as well...

This looks like something out of a computer game or film. Would make an excellent base for character design for something like Lord of the Rings!
