Viking burial mask, dating from the 10th Century, is believed to be a relic from the tomb of an unknown Viking Warrior. The form is based primarily on the pelvis of a bull, which represents strength and virility. The spinal column and rib cage, which protect the warrior's eyes, are those of a young wolf. The ram's horns give the warrior means to ward off the demons who might attack him on his journey after death.

657. If you consider the skin as a boundary, then everything under the skin for both the caveman and myself is exactly the same down to the the corpuscle, but outside of the skin everything is astoundingly different.

Here's an unusual and rather poignant momento mori of poor Captain George Holmes - senior officer killed in one of the hardest hit infantry battalions at the Battle of Waterloo. He was killed by a small lead ball that entered his chest cavity, after damaging a vertebra (Thoracic vertebra no. 2). His wife had his body macerated and the damaged bone removed. It was dried, varnished and the body of the vertebra set in silver-gilt. The lid was inscribed 'Waterloo'.
