Human skulls - an infant and an adult - in profile.The field of developmental anatomy describes the structural changes an individual progresses through from fertilization to full maturity. After birth, the 44 separate bones of the newborn skull gradually fuse, forming sutures. In the adult skull above, these may be seen as a series of serrated lines across the boundaries of the cranial bones. The skull also undergoes major alterations in terms of overall shape, and teeth begin to develop. Over a period of about two years, the number of separate bones in the infant skull halve in number as they are joined together.Illustration from Traité complet de l’anatomie de l’homme comprenant la médecine operatoire by Jean-Baptiste Marc Bourgery.

Finished (mostly) for the 2X2 exhibition. I will be revisiting this pieces and adding a pattern to the petals. However, since I need this to be dry to the touch for Sunday morning, I will be leaving that component out for now.
