Ernst Haekel and Jim Henson



(Jim Henson: Ap File photo).

I was researching Ernst Haekel's beautiful drawings (excellent public domain images here and here) when I noticed the Haekel portrait on Wikipedia reminds me of Jim Henson and Kermit. I half-expected Haekel's chimpanzee skeleton to be a rod puppet.
Maybe I should contact Winfrey Odhner to work on this with me....
