Neon Skulls by Eric Franklin

These oddly shaped neon skulls have been created by Portland-based artist Eric Franklin. This trio of skulls are lit internally by ionised neon, krypton and mercury, and have been created using a network of glass tubes, tightly sealed together in a vacuum.

I’m not really sure about the whole scientific procedure but the results are incredible and these skulls, as weirdly-shaped as they are, are another great asset to our society’s walls. Thanks to This is Colossal for blogging about them in the first place and to Eric for making them – you have our skull respect!

You can purchase one of these skulls from the Artworks Gallery here.
