The Great Passage – Kris KuksiJuly 14, 2013
Excuse me, do you have a moment to talk about Jesus.
Did I say Jesus….? Sorry I mean Kris Kuksi.
You may be familiar with his amazing, incredible, phenomenal (I dont think I can give enough adjectives describe the level of awesome involved here) sculptures, but were you aware that he also has a series of sketches and paintings? They are, as you can imagine, all very beautifully detailed – and of course our favourite involves a skull…

We got to see a bit of the base of the skull in our previous post about Chris Peters, but this picture is by far the best view we have seen yet. Meet The Great Passage – a picture no doubt named for its view of the foramen magnum. And while on the topic of foramen, if you look closely at the roof of this guys mouth, you will see the incisive foramen, a small opening behind the front teeth. Like the ones we have spoken about previously on the face, this one is also a tunnel for blood vessels and nerves to pass through the bone.
If you want to see more (and I highly recommend that you should) he can be found on his website and facebook page. There are even a few things for sale on his website… but if you are like me and cant afford the real thing, you can buy his book Divination and Delusion and drool over the pictures there!
