skeleton anatomy mosaic







This mosaic is made from that same dictionary.  We have been having so much fun with it.  My son thinks it's the funniest thing.  Some of the words are a hoot.  The words they choose to illustrate are even funnier.  The dictionary is from 1940 and it is a webster dictionary.  If you ever come across one you should buy it!

Wicked!!!!
You know when you see something that will spark everyone's imagination, and everyone will want one? THIS is it!!!! You've got to make more. The combination of macabre and beautiful is perfectly balanced.
Good job Jodi!!!!!!!

I really like this piece too. Looks like you could learn something from the great information in it. I love old dictionaries for the words they do not have.

Awe, thanks you guys. You were so right, this sold almost as soon as listed.

Old dictionaries are also amazing for what they choose to illustrate. My son is keeping the illustration of the middle finger. It's a ladies dainty hand with the middle finger gently raised... you should see it!
