There’s something about these portraits of famous historical characters by French artist, Sébastien Pons, that I am thoroughly enjoying.  Perhaps it’s the playful seriousness of the masks with the decrepit skull underneath.

Sébastien has many more anatomical works on his portfolio site, sebastienpons.net.
