One of the hardest things to achieve in life is to do something that you love and get paid for it. And that’s what I love about Kickstarter Projects – they make the impossible possible. It gives me great joy to share with you a fellow skull enthusiast and SAS artist – Virginia the Wolf. If you were able to come to our art exhibition last year then you would’ve remembered their work!
Virginia the Wolf needs some help and support to get to the next stage in their brand development – they urgently need some studio space so they can carry on creating the beautiful skulls they produce where they take pride in bringing art and science together through hand made ethically sourced bone jewellery and art sculptures.
They will be splitting the money between studio rental and bringing some skull beauty to a variety of UK festivals and markets.

Creature Box is an illustration studio who are brilliant at creating comic book characters. They also make monsters and this little skull creature is one of those!

Yes you read the title correctly. This is indeed a levitating skull. This strangely alien looking floating faceted skull levitates with the use of magic. Wait, I mean magnets. Which are pretty much magic.
This levitating skull is called ‘Ankou Gold’, meaning ‘magnetic levitation’. The skull is 3D printed and gilded with gold leaf. The skull is installed with electro magnets with a base of walnut wood and a hand crafted bell jar. Only 8 pieces exist.
It is available to buy on Saatchi Art and was created by Ao Gitsune. This skull costs a cool $10,100.
