We just love these Bethany Lowe
what's the story behind these
They are figures taken from
calendars taken from
The Antikamnia Chemical Company
The skeletons were created from 1897-1901
who was a physician as well as an artist.
The Antikamnia company used these calenders
to promote their drug "Acetanilide"
it was sold claiming to treat
pain, nervousness & blues
but you'd go blue after taking it,
for it prevented red blood cells
from releasing oxygen to your tissues!
Maybe that's what this skeleton is trying to say!
Acentanilide isn't around today...
but these great drawings still are!
