Portraits of 20th century figures — or at least their skulls

Artist Istvan Laszlo combines the bone structure of famous artists, activists, and politicians with their trademark features and hair lines to create unique portraits of what lies beneath and above their skin.

Up top is Laszlo's skull portrait of Freddie Mercury, complete with mustache marks. The skulls may not be anatomically accurate, but they certainly do carry a lot of their subjects' personalities.
