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.

A rock poster can only be made better by adding a skull. This is of course a design rule, known by the pros and written in bone.
This skull poster was created by Illustrator and Art Director Juan Camilo Corredor from Bogotá.
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.

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
These delightful cardboard-cutout skeleton mannequins are from Hans Boodt, a Dutch-based, global mannequin supplier.
The main skeleton mannequin, or dude as we call him, goes by the name of KNAAPJE. A true gent and scholar obviously.
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.

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.”
