The Centaur Excavations of Volos, an art exhibit brought to Hodges Library by Beauvais Lyons, professor of art, and Neil Greenberg, emeritus professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, is featured in an article on the Mental Floss website.

From the article: “The remains of the ‘Centaur of Volos’ were fabricated in 1980 by artist and biology professor Bill Willers when he felt inspired to combine the bones of a human specimen from his university’s biology department with those of a Shetland pony. After tea-staining them both for an authentic, consistent look, the first-ever centaur skeleton was born.”
