The Black Death Plague Doctor: A plague doctor was a special medical physician who saw those who had the Bubonic Plague. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, some doctors wore a beak-like mask which was filled with aromatic items. The masks were designed to protect them from putrid air, which (according to the miasmatic theory of disease) was seen as the cause of infection.

dichotomization:

A dead bat still hanging from the ceiling of a cave. 

Fun fact: When the muscles in a bat’s feet/legs relax, the foot closes. (Contrast to our hands, which open when the controlling muscles relax.) This is why bats can sleep—and die—upside down.

that’s a amazingly fun fact actually

Amazing!

Sam Edkins has made several of his Anatomically Correct Chairs. They are just lovely.

In these works the designer-maker Sam Edkins makes reference to Memento Mori, a theme often depicted in art and classical antiquity. Sam uses imagery sourced from old medical journals which he tailors to suit each antique chair before digitally printing his design on to brushed velvet. As a process this allows Sam to embroider a new history into them and makes each one slightly different. The shape of the chair allows the print to flow into the chair structure, giving a figurative character and seeming to personify the piece. Each chair is fully reconditioned and upholstered by Sam with his design. You can purchase one of these chairs here - http://cavalierofinn.bigcartel.com/

I’d love this
