Skull Bed For An Anthropologist?

Far be it from me to exclude you from the hilarious world of gift giving and gift ideas for anthropologists. This Skull Sleeping Chamber-looks more like a chair to me-comes from the ingenious mind of Joep van Lieshout from the Netherlands. It reminds me of those old egg chairs with the spinning pedestal base. It's a great conversation piece, in case any of you anthropology professors are looking for the perfect corner accessory for your office.

Evidently, this is not the only skull inspired furniture Lieshout has designed. His wellness skull has an actual bath in the neck of the skull and the head of the Skull contains a sauna. When it is working the hot steam pears out of the eye sockets. Now that's just too Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom for me!

Joep van Lieshout explains his macabre creation stating,

"The heavenly power is the big unknown, the death of the hereafter, the skull of physical shell of the mind. The earthly power is a economical power, money plays an important role on our contemporary society. Gradually the faith loses all importance and is replaced by an alternative ‘self experience’, through travelling, sporting and wellness centres.”
