“Cabinet of Curiosities” Auction

June 14th, 2010 by Cobwebs

Skulls and Skeletons

A Creationist “natural history” museum in Georgia is auctioning off its collection, and although I despair at giving money to charlatans, there’s some awesome stuff to be had. Items up for sale include:

  • authentic mammoth teeth
  • leaf fossils
  • 3-pc dinosaur fossil
  • woolly mammoth hair
  • dinosaur replicas
  • mummified cats from Egypt
  • carved and decorated hippo teeth
  • authentic skulls
  • mahogany hand-carved Chinese display case
  • urns
  • oils on canvas

Internet bidding is available and many items have no minimum bid, so even if you’re not in Georgia you might be able to get something marvelous. The auction begins June 25.
