LOL!... Vorhees-looking hockey mask on a female bust? Nice.
I'm digging how the preserved specimens are in regular-old mason jars. That screams homemade job, where someone had a genuine interest in supplementing the collection with their own locally captured critters. Love it!
Every object I saw in this place was obviously left there from when it was it was in use... except for that mask. I have to wonder how it ended up there.
It's funny you should mention the DIY nature of the specimen jars, because they weren't stored in a display case or a locker, or anywhere in the museum area. Oh no, they were out in a tiny shed in the back yard. I wouldn't have even known to look there if the door hadn't been wide open, so that the jars were visible.
