    This Turtle/tortoise skull belonged to my grandfather. He is an artist, and after finding this skull, on the beach many years ago, he began using it for still life style photographs. He has many amazing photographs and collages. Since he gave it to me it has become one of my prizes possessions even though I normally wouldnt want a bone as part of my collection.

      Vestaswind: Im glad someone took a look at his artwork. He is 95 and still works everyday in his studio, its inspiring. His prints are available on

      Lundy: well just the skull is about 10'' L X 8'' W so I think it must have been pretty big.
