For our latest podcast, The Skull, we did a little experiment in 3D printing.

Visit our Thingiverse page and print your own 2 million-year-old skull (or, if you don’t have access 3D printer, at least check out the nifty “thingview” option).

(Thanks to Henry Reich of MinutePhysics fame for snapping these photos!)

How could I possibly keep from reblogging this, I ask you.

A human female skull from Peru with cranial binding. 
Details from Bone Clones:
Dated over 2,000 years old, this skull is an extreme example of binding and elongation. Cranial binding is the shaping of the skull when a child is very young, usually an infant. This wrapping is often done with rope or cloth by itself or against a wooden board. This results in the misshaping, flattening (see our cradle-board skull, BC-222) or, in this case, elongation. This wrapping or binding, is thought to be the oldest form of body modification, dating back 9,000 years. This particular skull is from Peru, but this practice has occurred in other regions as well.

This five foot skull mosaic called What Remains by Kevin Champeny is made up of 35,000 tiny flowers. You can follow him here on Tumblr.

Have you always wanted to sit inside a skull?  Well, uh, here you go, weirdo.

Don’t worry, it’s porcelain, not the skull of a mystical hell-beast.  But, nice, right?
