Skull Key Tool can be purchased for $9.95 from Cool Material.

A new place for skull lovers has been born, and we are absolutely thrilled. Please meet, “Kaazo“!
Kaazo has just launched and already two of their skulls are currently being exhibited at Swiss Design Show “Grafik 16“.
Kaazo celebrates the beauty of nature and the emotive power that comes naturally from the expression of human creativity. Their skulls, which have been created from the conceptual design, through to the finished product, aim to spark one’s imagination from the very space they occupy.
We’re huge fans and hope you are too.
To check out more of their work, go to their website.
We all know the famous For the Love of God diamond encrusted skull by Damien Hirst. That’s what makes this piece so good. As you can see, at a glance it would catch out any onlooker. Tell you what, even closer inspection leaves doubt in the mind.
This skull took one month and a staggering 6522 Swarovski crystals to create. Finally the skull was then surreptitiously placed outside with some rubbish at White Cube gallery on the closing night of Damien Hirst’s Beyond Belief Exhibition. We Would love to have seen some of the reactions!
This skull and wonderful concept, titled ‘Forgotten Something!?’, spawned from the mind of Laura Keeble. In her own words she creates “a brief moment in time, when a double-take allows for an internal question, a need to assess or understand. I use symbolism and familiarities of the everyday to question what is dictated to us.”
Dental phantoms are such incredibly fascinating historical pieces that we, Mr Four Fingers, just had to draw one. This dental manikin is based on a real life version over at Museum Oddities. We have posted about this superb website before and we recommend you check them out.
This particular illustration was created with dip pen, Indian ink, blue ink and acrylic.
We like skulls a lot and so does Lucy Luskini. She has an incredible mixture of work available including modern day memento mori jewellery, mixed media artwork, tattoo inspired glass paintings and painted glassware.
Influences include Dia de los Muertos, rock’n’roll, kitsch (we love a bit of kitsh too), old school Hollywood, voodoo, cocktails, cabaret, pin up and retro style, religious iconography, bad ass women and anything Halloween related.
As always with skulls, the artist is especially interested in death and how we visualise it, many of her artworks involve skulls and skeletons and have a tongue in cheek humour about them, aiming to celebrate life whilst we still have it.
As cute as a Koala seems I always think that they are simply biding their time before they attack. Seeing a Koala Skull does not help the matter much.
Thankfully these terrors are unfounded as they are indeed slow moving lazy buggers who sleep a whopping 19-20 hours a day.
The koala’s main diet, well only diet, is eucalyptus leaves. They have to eat a truckload in order to get enough nourishment, hence their sleeping habits to reserve energy. Their strong jaws and teeth enable them to chew the leaves into a fine paste.
The skull featured here can be bought from the amazing Bone Clones for $154. You can also purchase this nice looking koala skull pendant from Farjil.
While we design the new website, which is taking ages!, I thought I would do one of my lazy posts and add this skull gif. Luckily other members of the skull team put a bit more effort in. Thanks Sharona and Doug!
Original, hand painted, realistic skull sculpture. Each one of these hand crafted, plaster skulls is uniquely painted by an artist from LA Collective, recently formed to represent emerging California Artists.
The Skull, dripping with bold colors, embodies the macabre with a street sensibility.
Each skull is hand painted and unique and as such colors will vary.
