…C’mon, it looks like him, doesn’t it? Will the Real Slim Shady, ESQ please stand up? It also sounds like an Agatha Christie mystery. “The Physician and the Case of the Stack of Skulls”.

In all seriousness, this is a daguerreotype called Man with Skulls, ca. 1850, from the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. I rather love it, but the screaming skull in the center is creeping me out a little. Does our mystery man have a special sense of humor?
