Skull-ptures by Hedi Xandt

German-born artist, Hedi Xandt, created these beautiful “skull-ptures” using a variety of materials. The skull-ptures combine the aesthetics of naturally shaped bone with state-of-the-art and experimental production techniques. Why haven’t we blogged about these before?! 

This is macabre, interesting and frightening all the same time. Enjoy!

Skulls Spotted at the Minnesota State Fair

I haven’t been to the Minnesota State Fair myself but someone, photographer Nikki Tundel, was kind enough to take some snaps of the various skulls spotted there. Without stealing their thunder and reposting the skulltacular work on our blog you can follow this link to view the awesome skull post :)

This carved skull piece, by Brent Brager, caught my eye though and I had to share. This oak skull carving titled “Appointment,” is on display in the Fine Arts Building at the Minnesota State Fair.

Macabre Gadgets Rings

Skull-styled rings are all the rage at the moment, and why not. The shape of a skull works perfectly with the style of a ring and these Macabre Gadgets rings are fine examples of that.

The rings are handmade with an industrial material and mass production, such as polymer plastic, chosen for the specific characteristics of durability and flexibility, but the end result has a patina of old and used. A part of rings is encrusted with metals and semi-precious stones.

Black Obsidian Skull

This shiny black obsidian skull was tracked back through numerous Tumblr accounts to what seems to be the originators, Skullis, who we have featured a few times. I can’t seem to find the actual link to this skull as there are hundreds.

This skull measures 5.3 inches long with a removable jaw with teeth finished with Australia opal. If you want it, you gotta hunt it.

Gemstone Skull Pendants by August Voss Arts

These gemstone skull carvings have been made by August Voss Arts. I was reading the info on his Facebook page and looks like we both have much in common when it comes to our view on skulls – August also sees skulls as a celebration of life, and as a reminder that life is short so we should make the most of it.

I would love to see some process shots on how he creates these beautiful gemstone skull pendants – the detail is first class! He’s got loads of these skull carvings so be sure to visit his FB page to see the rest of his work.

Untitled Skull Sculpture by Kris Kuksi

I am always amazed by the different types of work we find in our search for skulls. People seriously blow my mind and this Untitled sculpture, featuring some skulls, by Kris Kuksi is mind boggling. It was also sent to us by a Facebook fan, so cheers for sharing!

Kris creates all sorts of detailed sculptures, each one as beautiful as the last, and I’ve spotted more than 1 skull in there!

Skull Woodwork by Maskull Lasserre

This creative woodwork skull carving is by Maskull Lasserre. We’ve featured a skull of his before where he carved a skull out of a book which had been clasped in a vice. The man is amazingly talented and you can see some of his other works here, which include carving skulls and skeletal systems out of wood.


Skull Nickels

Nickel carving originated in the 18th century and the coins themselves were referred to as Hobo Nickels – the name is derived from the great depression when unemployed artists spent their time carving these little pieces of art in the hope to make some extra money – there is even a Hobo Nickel Society!.

The craze really took off in the 20th century due to a softer metal being used to mint the coins known as Buffalo Nickel. There are many different coin designs and patterns from this era but we love these skull nickels the most, for obvious reasons!

Bali Organic Arts – Skull Carvings

One of our previous posts showed some insane skull carvings on buffalo skulls available from Beachcomber (Yorkshire, England) has smashed out almost 200K Stumbles on StumbleUpon (not sure if that sentence is correct). Anyway, they are awesome.

We have posted a few times about these amazing carvings and have since come into contact with the actual artists from Bali from a company called Bali Organic Arts (FB Page). Below is some recent work and definitely some of their most intricate. There are also some nice process images how they take an already beautiful skull and elevate it to splendid beauty.

I will own one of these one day!
