One-of-a-kind collectibles ranging from hand sculpted polymer clay items to original artwork all created by Morgans Mutations. I've been asked this many times, and yes... all realistic eyes and teeth that are used in my works are handmade by me, and you cannot get them anywhere else but here.
I make creatures, monsters and mutated things out of polymer clay. I love creating beings that have realistic features, from the eyes, teeth and the wrinkles in its flesh.www.etsy.com/shop/MorgansMutations

Mythic Articulations was created in late 2013 with one goal in mind ― to create what nature won't. More specifically, to create the skeletons and skulls of mythical creatures and cryptids. We offer a growing variety of replica osteological specimens of animals that you just can't get anywhere else, because they don't exist (or haven't been proven to exist). Be it the elusive Bare-Fronted Hoodwink, the mighty Wolpertinger, or something else that you might have actually heard of, we'll do our best to make it real. We use state of the art 3D Printing techniques to create each replica.www.mythicarticulations.com Oddities, Toys

Museum Vrolik is named after Gerard Vrolik (1775-1859) and his son Willem (1801-1863). Gerard and Willem were both Professor of Anatomy in Amsterdam. Their Museum Vrolikianum was a private collection that could be viewed at their home. The collection included normal anatomy of humans and animals, but also pathological anatomy and congenital malformations.
After the death of Willem Vrolik the specimens were bought by a group of rich Amsterdammers, who gave them to the Athenaeum Illustre in Amsterdam, predecessor to the University of Amsterdam. Although the collection was subsequently expanded by consecutive Amsterdam anatomists, it retained the name ‘Museum Vrolik’. Since 1984 Museum Vrolik has been located in the Academic Medical Centre of Amsterdam.
