Beautiful Anatomical Skeletons, Posed and Photographed As Sculptures

Photographer Patrick Gries transforms ordinary specimens, stripped of fur and flesh, into art that showcases motion, predation and evolution

What happens when you unleash an acclaimed luxury goods photographer on hundreds of anatomical animal skeletons kept in museum collections

If that photographer is Patrick Gries and the skeletons are those of Paris’ Natural Museum of History, you’ll get a series of 300 stark photographs that transform staid, ordinary scientific specimens into biological art.

1.A golden eagle swoops for a rabbit     2. A Narwhal

3.An African elephant            4. A Horse and Human

5. A Brown Woolly Monkey           6. A Flying Lemur
7. A Cheetah                                8.A red fox and common vole
9.A Eurasian Sparrowhawk and a House Sparrow
10. A Rattlesnake


these are from a great book

The skull of the Chinese Water Deer is one of the most iconic skulls out there. 

Like many small Asian deer species, it does not have antlers. Instead the males fight each other with their extremely sharp tusks, slashing at rivals with downward head swings. 

When not actively shanking others, the tusks can be folded back slightly., so they don’t interfere with eating.
