Armatures

Armature, Museum of comparative anatomy, Paris

One of the fascinations that has emerged out of hanging around natural history museums is for the armatures that support skeletons, often of dinosaurs. These carefully crafted structures not only hold the form of the animal but also discuss the character and poise of the beast. Here are some samples form the museum of comparative anatomy in Paris. I will post some more form the ‘States.
