Hey, what are these? Voodoo dolls for the AIG Execs who just got multi-million dollar bonuses for failing? We wish. Instead, they answer another pressing question: Did you ever wonder what it would be like to contract syphillis in 1910 Germany? The Science Museum London presents these icky, realer-than-real dolls showing the effects of syphillis on the human face. Real hair was used in the creation of these adorable, cute little dolls. We also like the ‘related objects’ feature below the main catalogue entry.
Nothing like a trip down the syphillis-ridden uncanny valley to end your day.
