Skulls with soul

Some bones just give you a look. It is often the primates, but some skulls seemespecially expressive, and just catch your attention. This "enigmatic gibbon" is the Grant Museum blog specimen of the week. and I can't stop looking at it. It is like it is begging for a returned glance of mutual understanding. He reminds me of an immature gorilla at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. An archaeologist friend assures me that some skulls "smile". I won't say more. I will just gaze into the engaging eye sockets of these beauties. #Museum #Grants #skeleton #gibbon #Oxford #gorilla #skull #smiling #engaging
