The Golden Skull (Human)

Possibly one of the most unique skulls to cross the threshold of The Cabinet! Aged and ominous, this greenish gold painted skull has what appears to be real gold set within the cracks and crevices.
From the Billy Jamieson Collection.

  1. The one photo showing the sagittal suture (top to bottom) is really interesting. it appears a bit open, which would suggest the person it came from was young-ish, but since I have never seen a painted skull before, I may be wrong. Cabinet of Curiosities, is there any documentation stating the estimated age of the “donor” of the skull?
