The sharp features in the carving, he believes, do not fit the Aztec style either, which has a softer look. Freestone notes that critics of his conclusion might argue that the marks he observed came from a more recent cleaning, not from the original carving. It's still not definitively solved and it will never be.
Most people who have encountered it do say it has made an impression. Some of the staff at the Museum of Mankind might agree. Though the skull is no longer displayed because its origins are in question, it is so strangely hypnotic that there is a story that the museum maintenance crew at one time insisted that the object be covered with a black cloth before they worked around it at night. Mitchell-Hedges Skull. Legend of the 13 Crystal Skulls. Though most archeologists believe that the life-sized crystal skulls we are familiar with today are 19th century fakes, there is a one popular myth that connects them with the ancient Mayan culture.
The story goes that in ancient times there were 13 skulls, most of which are now lost to history. According to the story, they must be found before December 21, That day marks the end of the current Mayan calendar cycle which has lasted 5, years.
On that date, according to the legend, the earth will be knocked off its axis, unless the thirteen skulls are brought together and aligned properly. If that is done, the paranormal power of the skulls can save the planet. The Mitchell-Hedges skull has an even more checkered past than the one at the Museum of Mankind. Its supposed discoverer, Frederick Albert Mitchell-Hedges, was a self-proclaimed British adventurer during the early twentieth century.
He traveled through much of South and Central America and the Caribbean working sometimes as an explorer for different organizations, at other times as a correspondent for the Daily Mail.
He contended that he found the skull while exploring an ancient temple in the Mayan city of Lubaantun in British Honduras. He seemed, however, very reluctant to reveal the details, writing: "How it came into my possession I have reason for not revealing. Mitchell-Hedges, a colorful character if there ever was one, was apparently not above telling a few tall tales. He alleged that he had gambled with the rich J. Morgan, roomed with Leon Trotsky and fought with Pancho Villa.
All of these stories, however, appear to be total fabrications. The skull itself, of course, is very real, but how it came into Mitchell-Hedges possession is an open question. We know for sure that he owned it in That year a member of the staff of the British Museum bid on the skull at an auction and made this note:.
Bid at Sotheby's sale, lot 54, 15 x 43 up to [pounds] Fairfax. Brought in by Burney. Sold subsequently by Mr. Burney to Mr. Mitchell-Hedges for [pounds]. I never owned this Super Art Desk specifically, but Crayola made tons of like-styled sets. I seemed to get one for every Christmas. Plastic desks, stunted easels, hot pink briefcases, you name it. A good crayon session could last for hours, and I loved knowing that I had that to look forward to once I got bored with my other gifts.
It was like an insurance policy that covered me in the event that I plowed through my new video games too quickly.
