Detail of the part of my collection devoted to naturalistic specimens, showing an ostrich in its egg, a handcarved whale tooth, a coral and a human skull.

    I hope so ! I tried the dog skull (Yeah I love dogs ) and it just didn't look right on me.

    It is perfectly legal to posses and sell human bones. There are a few exceptions and addendums to this including a few states where import and export has been banned, and of course, protected archaeological resources.

    I recently talked to Ryan Matthew Cohn about the legality and issues around these kind of collectibles, if you're interested.

    Thanks Lisa! Of course I had already read those wonderful articles, and at times they seem to be talking about me... I know Mike from Obscura, and have bought some items there on my last NYC trip. And I've been on the subway several times with similar stuff in my bag. :)
