to:

* Arthur Rothstein's photo series documenting the dust bowl in South Dakota included several of these. It was a scandal at the time because it was pretty obviously the same skull every time (the series was part of a government program documenting the drought). According to the photographer he was just moving a skull he found around the same small area to capture the shadows differently.

* The Matchbox/Revell [[http://s156.photobucket.com/user/blake7_11/media/Matchbox/PanzerIIIAusfL/PanzerIIIAusfL-06.jpg.html kit of the WW2 German Panzer III tank]] comes with a display base to mount the completed tank kit; it depicts a North African desert sand-dune, with the tank posed as breasting the crest of the sand. Just to emphasise the point this is an Afrika Korps panzer, there is a bleached animal skull to set artistically into the modelled sand.
