Inspired by Honore Fragonard, the infamous anatomist who preserved hundreds of deformed oddities common to his time. The creepiness of this, however, pales in comparison to his most gruesome works.. such as the freakishly long-legged and headless cat he preserved (it was actually born that way, and lived O_o), the skinless horse and humans, and all of the eight-legged goats and such. Wanna see?? XD The site's in French and the pictures are small, but go here and take a gander! XD
Btw.. sorry this pic's so light and so small.. my scanner is doing many stupid things as of late.

(Update: Fixed the link. >_< )

Meep! ::hides behind a 50-inch thick radioactive steel wall:: How scary!!! i've never heard of this guy you speak of before, i think i'll check out his site. (Eric can translate. 1)

And i really like this one, Dejie! i love the composition of the bodies of the horses, and the way the tops of their heads looks like a mirror image; was this hard to do? (Lol, at first when i saw the thumbnail, it looked like two horsies in love ^///^) ::huggles you tight:: it's wonderful (and creepy) Dej-Pej!

oh yeah, almost forgot. ::does the first comment butt-jiggle::

OHHH!! siamese skinless horses.This is very original i really like it!It's a bit scary it looks like two ghosts in a way. I've been to the website and i don't think i'm going to translate it for Mocha some parts are disgusting, lol. Anyway, i found it interesting. Nice work Dej!

I had totally forgotten about this guy 'till just now. As I recall, he did strip bodies of their skin to show the inner workings -- something nobody of his time was commonly all that sure of. And, as I heard, one of these is believed to have been his own wife!

Freaking awsome idea! The sort of thing a slightly insane and bored necromancer would come up with.
