This beautifully shot Barbary lion skull is currently on display at the Natural History Museum in London and was photographed by Harry Taylor. I found this image on the Guardian Eyewitness app on my iPad – probably one of the coolest apps I have.
Johanna Silvester is a Kenyan born artist who created this awesome sand cast aluminium Lion Skull. This skull is based on an actual lion called Scaramanger! He was the pride male on Loisaba Wilderness between 2001 and 2003. Loisaba Wilderness is a conservation project in Northern Laikipia.
The skull of this impressive beast underlines how powerful they are created to be.

This amazing sheep skull sculpture was created by the amazing Shane Wilson (featured on here before) and is definitely one of the best skull sculptures I have seen. This was a commissioned piece by a man who hunted the sheep (that does sound amusing) and you can even see one of the bullet holes on the right horn.
Agus Suwage‘s skull-inspired artwork are all replica works of other famous art pieces, except Agus uses skulls in his work. If you know which pieces of art these are taken from please leave a comment in the comments section.
I recently bought this Book of Skulls from Amazon and it’s the perfect little book for any skull lovers’ coffee table. The book tells a story of the skull and how, from around the 1970′s, it has enjoyed a renaissance and emerged as one of the most recognisable symbols in today’s contemporary visual landscape. It’s over 150 pages of skull porn – from skull prints to skull sculptures and skull fonts to skull tattoos, this book has it all.
I highly recommend this book! It’s only around £7 ($11) and can be bought from Amazon here.

The only other time I have seen a ball of creatures was in the classice space horror movie called Critters (may have been Critters 2). However, this creation of mouse skulls is definitely more beautiful, if not safer to humankind. Alastair Mackie creates the skull balls from hundreds of skulls collected from owl pellets on his families farm. These four skulls were a part of an exhibition called ” I was there in Arcadia ” in 2011.

Nothing better than a beautiful carved skull, and this carved crocodile skull is a work of art. We found this skull on the Oceanic Arts Gallery.
