The card with the head is really cool, but it's not surgical (no lobotomies of Hannibal Lecter moments going on Wink)...it's from the pseudo/protoscience of Phrenology.  The head was divided up (not physically) into sections, each correlating with a specific 'brain organ'...a phrenologist would feel for bumps on the skull, and depending on which area the bump was in (and thus which 'organ' it pertained to), they would make judgements on your personality/character.

Weird old "science"-y stuff, but nothing medical Smiley  It does look really cool though...it's definitely in competition with the 'Hand of Fate' card for my favorite thus far...

I have an old book on phrenology, too. Well, technically it belongs to my mom, but... I've had it for years. Still, those dotted lines look like 'cut here' instructions! Wink  Guess I've been using my scissors a lot lately... cutting on the brain. (Ooh, a pun!)

All the paper I used is just scrapbook paper. Nothing fancy.

I adore that card!  The moon, the background color and the way it frames the moon...it's...
