The human skull is a combination of several bones, and is developed and structured specifically to protect vital areas of the brain and body. A skull actually tells a lot about a person, both with regards to gender and age, but it also provides other information and is frequently important in forensic investigations.

In art, the skull frequently appears in horror or macabre styles, but it can also show up in other types of art. Skulls are well known as logos and the skull and crossbones is a common motif used, especially with references to piracy.

In this post, I’ve collected 30 examples of skulls being created or highlighted in more abstract forms to show off the artistic qualities.
