    I can't even imagine how one would work glass in such a manner!

    Phenomenal.

    I really wish I'd gotten better photos of these but honestly, no photo could ever do these justice. If anyone is ever in the Boston area looking for something to do....look no further than Harvard's Museum of Natural History. They have some stunning collections and the admission is only $12.00.

    Here are some other interesting things to be seen there.

    Prehistoric beasts of all shapes and sizes.....














    Diplocaulis.......one of my favorites.








    Just the skull on this is over 8 feet long.








    A massive fossilized freshwater turtle shell.......some of you may recognize the gent in the background.






















    A preserved Coelecanth and other specimens.










    And some glass sculpted invertebrates, some by the same artisans who crafted the plants.

    The 3 complete whale skeletons hanging in the Victorian taxidermy gallery were superb.


    This Right Whale has been hanging there for over 100 years and still drips copious amounts of oil from the skull.





    Also on display are some of the last grim reminders of our own carelessness and greed as a species........

    A Passenger Pigeon.


    A Great Auk skeleton.


    A Dodo.


    A Moa.

    The craftsmanship on the glassworks is absolutely superb. Simply stunning.
