Pink Porcelain Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia and K. Olin Tribu

    Not too long ago I read the book "The Lobotomist" about Walter Freeman, who was the man that pioneered the transorbital lobotomy.  You know, where they shove an ice pick through your eye socket and scramble up your frontal lobes.  The scary thing about it is not that he was delusional enough to think that it was a good idea, but that they were doing this nonsense only 50 years ago.  It makes you wonder what barbaric thing we do now will be looked at in the future with scornful eyes.  Like letting dudes wear skinny jeans.  

(On a side note, if you're interested in the first book, you should follow it up by reading "My Lobotomy", which was written by one of Freeman's patients who received a lobotomy at the age of 12)

    K. Olin Tribu has released another edition of Emilio Garcia's popular Skull Brains, this time in fleshy pink.  This is by far my favorite, as it looks freshly plucked and ready for your dinner table!  Think about it:  it's probably safer than eating anything that comes out of the ocean.  This porcelain sculpture is available now by visiting http://www.artandtoys.com/.
