A Diggity Dang Unicorn

I am amazing, in addition I'm a 22 year old artist and am a recent graduate from MIAD as a sculpture major. I love what I do therefor I will do what I love. I really like animals a lot it should be obvious! Horses and ungulates mostly but I love a lot of other animals. I post a lot of horses and artwork on my blog as well as stuff from TLOTR and The Hobbit and a lot if other movies I like as well as shit that's just funny! I hope to do what I love for the rest of my life and live on a farm with lots of animals.

So last fall I was checking the remains of my garden next to the house and found this dead bird laying under the tomato plant. I dug it a hole and buried the poor thing. I recalled that I had buried it under a large rock and decided to dig it up just to take a look. The whole skull plus jaw bone came right up and it was so perfect. I cleaned it up and here it is now. It’s so fragile, when it was wet the whole cranium was transparent, even now it’s faintly apparent that its see through.

I consulted my resident bird expert and she said it looked like a house sparrow which would mean it is legal to keep. I suspect the bird died of internal damage after hitting the side of my house or the window, as I recall it was not visibly injured on the outside.
