Fictional Anatomy

Pac Man Skull, Bugs Bunny, Gummi Bears

— August 3, 2008 — Science
To think the images of the real life Simpsons scared me! This Pac Man skull is way too freaky, I actually can’t look at it.

It is a piece from artist Le Gentil Garcon, who carefully studied the skulls of human and predatory animals. Such was his desire to get this right and base it on ‘fact’ that he even collaborated with paleontologist Francois Escuille to make the most accurate representation, right down to the tiny sacrum on his back-end.

The skull is 65cm in diameter and made of resin. It is just amazing, yet but horrible at once.

The same site features skeletal models of popular cartoon characters from the past such as Bugs Bunny, the Road Runner, Tom and Jerry, and Donald Duck. The genius is in the detail and he even gives each cartoon character a genus and species name.  Again, scare the life out of me!

In the same vein is the work of Jason Freeny. He created the detailed anatomy of cherished childhood objects such as the balloon animal and my personal favourite, the gummi bear. Also “freak or unique,” but less scary are the pieces on the gummi bear anatomy and of the balloon animal. Thankfully, these freak me out a lot less.

Come back real life cartoons, all is forgiven!
