Artist Wayne Martin Belger specializes in exotic handmade “pinhole cameras,” which expose images onto film without the need of a lens. The idea itself is nothing new, but Belger's actual cameras will give you the willies... especially the ones made out of human skulls.

For example... “Third Eye,” shown above, is built onto the 150-year-old skull of a young girl. The hinge mechanism is made from various metals and the "Third Eye" in the forehead is set with gemstones. Light enters through that opening for a set amount of time, exposing film stored inside the skull.

This amazing piece, named “Yama” after the Tibetan god of Death, is built out of a 500-year-old skull which was blessed by a Tibetan Lama prior to Belger's travels to Tibetan refugee cities in India.

It's covered in precious metals and jewels, including a ruby (the "Third Eye") valued at $5000.

Using a pneumatic triggering device, “Yama” takes 3D photos (using apertures in both eye sockets), which have become the first part of a darkly erotic series (the examples are slightly NSFW), which he describes as a “modern incarnation of Southeast Asian deities.”
