Out of this world art

Lee Downey carved this life sized skull from a 615 pound meteorite.  Scientists say it is part of a planet that orbited between Mars and Jupiter.  When that planet broke apart it flew through space for four billion years.  A thousand years ago it entered the earth's atmosphere and landed in Namibia's Kalahari Desert.  It will be auctioned at Bonhams in Los Angeles on November 24.
