A bezoar is a mass found trapped, usually the gastrointestinal system, like a kidney stone or something, that can be organic or inorganic (sometimes with hair).  Bezoars became highly prized back in the Renaissance days when the upper crust people were poisoning each other for power right and left.  The Bezoars were thought to be magical and it was believed that putting a bezoar in your drinking glass or food would neutralize the poison.  As a result bezoars were quite expense and made into necklaces, rings, goblets …

There is a famous story that in 1575 a surgeon devised an experiment to test the properties of the bezoar stone. It happened that a cook at King’s court was caught stealing fine silver cutlery and was sentenced to death by hanging. The cook agreed to be poisoned instead. The surgeon used the bezoar stone to no great avail, as the cook died in agony seven hours later. 

Even more interesting, in tests at the Scripps Institute in modern times, it was discovered that the bezoars actually DO work as an antidote to arsenic, just not all poisons.

If you are in Berlin, they have one mouse skull ball on exhibition at the ME Gallery.  I was just there last month, it is part of their Wunderkammer exhibit.  Which is Awesome!

Went to the Wunderkammer Exhibit at the ME Museum in Berlin earlier this week and watched the whole Antoine Roegiers film of Bruegel’s 7 Deadly Sins.  What heavenly work done about hell!
