pen and ink drawing, 6 x 8 inches, 2008

This drawing depicts the skull of a 25-year-old man afflicted with hydrocephalus (aka, “water on the brain”). The enormous pressure of excess cerebrospinal fluid building up within cavities of the brain caused his cranium to expand asymmetrically.

This specimen is part of the collection of the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
