Still life of a skull on top of two books

Each week we present a collection of artwork from a variety of artists curated around a common theme. This week the theme is Bone. As in biology. As in Anatomy. For this week's curated collection I thought that we would return to this all-time classic component of still-life: bone. The artistic study of bones, skulls and entire skeletons has a long-standing tradition which permeates all of art history.  Here are some carefully selected artworks curated around the idea of bone.
