Phrenology as Art

I may soon be leaving Facebook behind . They're getting too free and annoyingly invasive with the adverts. FB is my platform for sharing all the incredible artists I find. Well- guess I'll focus on my blog here and do it this way, and I'll just have to steer people to Begin Being to see all the great art!

(check back in a couple days to see what's next.)


first up is all the great Phrenology pieces I've found.
there are tons more too. maybe I'll do a Phrenology Part Deux

clever
