100 Skull-Clad Designs

From Anatomical Street Art to Human Cranium Confections

— May 1, 2012 — Art & Design
The human mind has long fascinated psychologists and artists alike, and it is no wonder that this fascination has come to fruition in the forms of these skull-clad designs. Clothing lines and baked goods have all been modeled after the crown, carving out the intricate lines of the anthropoid cheek bones, jaw lines and eye sockets.

While many may associate these images with a costume-based Halloween motif, they have actually become year-round staples. Anatomical street art and human cranium confections are now commonplace sightings, bringing the structure to the fore in new creative ways. Biologists are certainly no longer the only professionals preoccupied with the skeletal formation, and this is in large part due to the growing consumer interest in this style.
