The Mütter Museum presents Perfect Vessels, a brand new exhibition by LA-based artist and photographer David Orr, inspired by the Museum’s renowned Hyrtl Skull Collection.
In Perfect Vessels, Orr uses symmetry to explore aesthetic and cultural ideals of perfection by photographing a human skull facing his lens, then mirroring half to transform it into a perfectly balanced memento mori.
