I've become fascinated by the Victorian curiosity cabinets and decided to make a miniature curio box in that theme. The newspaper is actually printable mini newspaper in 1/12th scale. Smiley I used a combination of found things (the rocks and shells were from a recent camping trip to the central coast) and things I collect, such as the fossil shark teeth.

A fascinating cabinet. Do you have a story for the items on the back?

I don't, but now that you say that I think I might add it for later (when I forget, lol)

The bird skull was the hardest part, I had owl pellets to take apart with my son, he got bored after one, but I had ordered several. The skull was in one, so I carefully cleaned it and glued it back together for this.

I love it. I agree with Antidigger. That skull is super cool. Good work.
