A mostly symmetrical skull-ideal that beguiles your expectations by appearing perfect but possessing just enough subtle asymmetry to preserve a touch of the real. Our skulls are based on the anatomical illustrations of such figures as Leonardo da Vinci, well-known for his fascination with the human body, and Andreas Vesalius, usually regarded as the father of modern human anatomy. What is remarkable about these early drawings is that they aren't scientifically accurate, they're idealizations that combine observation with imagination. A real human skull isn't symmetrical and is actually quite horrific to look at. The artistic skulls of these Renaissance illustrations, however, have the magical quality of seeming more real than the real thing itself. They are hyper-real. Likewise, the Anthony Lent skull sculptures are works of art that can fool us into thinking they're based on real, human skulls.
