A model of the British Royal Navy ship HMS Victory made out of beef bones and human hair will go under the hammer today. The 28in long model, which was made by French prisoners-of-war incarcerated in British jails during the Napoleonic Wars, will go on auction at Bonhams and is expected to fetch up to £30,000.
It was built from left-over beef bones from the prisoners' meals to pay for their upkeep. Bones form the hull while human hair was used for the rigging and paper tissue for the flags. Other details include anchors, belfry and ship's boats. It is even fitted with pull cords with bone finials for operating the guns.

Amputees could soon be fitted with prosthetic limbs that enable them to regain their sense of touch, thanks to a break-through new bionic hand device.
"This work offers the possibility that an amputee may one day be able to feel with an artificial limb as though it was his own. Sensors could be placed in a prosthetic hand to measure contact forces and temperature, while a device could press or thermally stimulate the reinnervated skin to provide sensory feedback that appropriately correlates to hand perception."
The technique could soon be used to make artificial arms that can reproduce feeling, possibly within as little as two years.

Taylor was shot early Monday in the upper leg, damaging an artery and causing significant blood loss.
"According to a preliminary investigation, it appears that the victim was shot inside the home by an intruder," Miami-Dade County police said in a statement.
But police were still investigating the attack, which came just eight days after an intruder was reported at Taylor's home. Officers were dispatched about 1:45 a.m. Monday after Taylor's girlfriend called 911.
