Does anyone else out there collect items made of bone? My collection has dice, pipes, letter openers, fountain pens, and a key, as well as a few deer bones I found in California. I really like the material for some reason...
(Is this weird?)
It's not weird, but I instantly thought of the phrase "Rag and Bone Man" - from England, I think.
I'm a vet student and come across with -many- bones in our anatomy rooms. And I can prove, bones are extremely exciting to collect and study. I was actually thinking of collecting bones that I find in the woods, as I've seen many. I still regret not taking the sheep skull I found three years ago. It was awesome and in good condition. That was quite silly of me :<
I have a few bones, mostly they’re used as drawing stimulus, and the coolness factor. Among the collection I have an African Rock Python skull, an adolescent baboon skull, my favorite are the really tiny bird and mammal skulls. They generally don’t last as long as the larger skulls. My father had a really cool lion skull (I wonder who the hell has it now?)
