Bruce Mahalski Bone & Skull Sculptures



Every now and again we find some truly inspiring skull sculptures. We at the Skull Society welcome the superbly talented Bruce Mahalski from New Zealand. This man certainly knows how to awe us with his skull and bone creations.

Bruce creates amazing bone and skull sculptures made entirely from genuine remains. His art is not made for shock value, far from it. Rather, he has a great respect for the living and the deceased. No more so than in his most ‘Reliquary Box’ that features a real human skull. I recommend that you read his article in which he discusses skulls in art, called Human bones in art.

Bruce Mahalski series of Bone Guns remind me of the guns from the film ‘Existenz. Minus the human tooth used as a bullet.

The Real Red Skull

Red_Skull_4 Red_Skull_3

Pic shows: Henry Damon had already had bumps put on his forehead and arms before deciding to have the end of his nose chopped off to look like villain Red Skull. A comic book fan decided to have his nose removed so he could look like Marvel comic super villain Red Skull. Henry Damon, 37, who now calls himself Red Skull, is from the Venezuelan capital Caracas and had already had bumps put on his forehead and arms before deciding to have the end of his nose chopped off. Pal Pablo Hernandez said of the happily married dad: "He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got round to doing it. "Then he met up with a brilliant surgeon who specialises in extreme body modifications and just knew that this was his opportunity." Ranked as the 14th greatest comic book villain of all time, Red Skull first appeared in 1947 as the Nazi agent arch-enemy of comic book hero Captain America. He was most recently portrayed by British-Australian actor Hugo Weaving in the 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger. The surgeon who Henry went to was Emilio Gonzalez who dropped out of medical school to concentrate on tattooing and extreme body surgery. He said: "First I have to ensure that a person is 100 percent healthy, with no respiratory disease. "I asked for a tomography of the nose and sinuses to assure me that it was ok for surgery. "In addition, a nasal mucus sample was taken to make sure that it had no infection. "Henry aka Red Skull is a physically and intellectually healthy person. "He’s an excellent son, husband and father, who has an extreme taste for body modification. "Most of my customers know that body modification is the last step of body art, everyone knows very well what they want and as well as Henry, many of them are waiting for me for many years to make their dreams a reality." But he admitted that chopping off Henry’s nose was only the first step towards changing him into Red Skull. Gonzalez said: "Next will be silicone implants on the cheekbones, chin and cheeks. "Then we will dye his face read and then he will be Red Skull." (ends)  

Captain America The First Avenger

We are, of course, great fans of the comic book bad guy Red Skull. But it seems our level of admiration for Red Skull falls far short with that of Henry Damon’s unadulterated fascination.

This Venezuelan man has taken body modification to an extreme with his attempt at transforming his face into that of Red Skull. This fella has subdermal implants, tattooed red skin, tattooed eyes (black) and even had a portion of his nose sliced off. Though this Red Skull has a beard it seems.

Witch-king of Angmar

The Witch-king of Angmar was the leader of the Nazgûl or Ringwraiths, and Sauron’s second-in-command in the Second and Third Ages. Once a king of men, he was corrupted by one of the nine Rings of Power given to the lords of men and became an undead wraith in the service of Sauron.

We found this wicked illustration on Pinterest and can’t seem to find the artist! FAIL! If you know who did it please leave a comment and we’ll update :)

Human Skeleton vs Gorilla Skeleton


This photo shows a fascinating comparison between a human skeleton and a gorilla skeleton. Not only does this show you the huge bone mass of this beast but check out the large crest on the skull. This crest acts as an anchor for large jaw muscles. At least I think that is correct.

Crying Skull Candles

The candles were designed by The Jacks, a South Korean-based design team. Their Kickstarter campaign (which has already reached its goal but is still accepting contributions) outlines the journey that their idea took from concept to fabrication. Both candle holders and candles had to be optimised to ensure that the wax would flow through the eyes the way they wanted it to.

If you like these macabrely-fantastic candle creations, check out The Jacks’ website and contribute to their Kickstarter, too!

They can also be used as creative flower pots. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

Shinji Nakaba’s Carved Pearl Skulls

carved-pearl-skulls-vanitas-shinji-nakaba-3 carved-pearl-skulls-vanitas-shinji-nakaba-15 carved-pearl-skulls-vanitas-shinji-nakaba-31 carved-pearl-skulls-vanitas-shinji-nakaba-32 carved-pearl-skulls-vanitas-shinji-nakaba-34 carved-pearl-skulls-vanitas-shinji-nakaba-36

Shinji Nakaba is a Tokyo-based jewelry designer who’s been creating since 1974. Everything he makes is wearable, and Nakaba often uses unconventional materials to create his pieces. These intricately carved pearl skulls are an example of his exceptional work.

“I just want to bring brand new life to something that has no value,” Nakaba tells Magnifico. “I use not only precious metals and stones, but also everyday things, such as aluminum beer cans, plastic bottle, or even garbage,” he explains on Etsy.

“Vanitas” is carved into many of Nakaba’s skulls. This is Latin for “vanity,” and is likely a reference to 16th-17th century funerary art. Work of this type emphasized the meaninglessness of earthly life “and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.”
