Mythic Articulations

I love the grey region between science and art, that meeting point of cutting edge technology and artistic creativity. Perhaps this is best embodied by Brian Richardson, an artist and designer from New York. While I was searching for anatomical models online I came across these beautifully bizarre skeletons of mythical creatures. Ranging from the humanoid Fairy Skeleton to the outrageously titled Mongolian Death Worm

Below is my favourite model - El Chupacabra. The Chupacabra is a mythical creature found in the southern U.S. and throughout Central America. It is said to feed on goats, similar to a vampire bat. 

He is also an accomplished graphic artist, and his pseudo-anatomical prints are also gorgeous. Check out this anatomical squirrel skull  - such lovely details! This is part of his collection of animal skulls.
