These animal skull wearing guys were a part of the festivities and celebrations at the recent 2013 Rijeka Carnival in Croatia. Rijeka is located in Kvarner Bay, an inlet of the Adriatic Sea and a quick search on Google Images will show you how beautiful it is. I’m not sure if there is a particular reason for the Carnival but it certainly looks good telling by the great photographs taken by Rudolf Abraham.
Some amazing skull photography by Robin Loznak. He does not normally photograph skulls as this was only a way to show off his new studio upgrade for better and seamless backgrounds. We are glad he did because they are great.
Found these curious and often impressive skulls on the New York Times website and are also featured in a book called “Skulls: An Exploration of Alan Dudley’s Curious Collection”. This book is written by Simon Winchester with photography by Nick Mann.

I’m sure most of us have seen the innocently erotic graphite and oil paintings from Audrey Kawasaki but now we at SAS have the chance to share some of her that feature skulls. As with all her paintings the female figure is always central to her work and is often enhanced by patterns, creatures and super soft blended colours. The combination of these sensuous beings and skulls create something entirely beautiful.
Audrey has even painted on a replica skull that was part of Kat Von D’s ‘Skulls Collective Show’ at Wonderland Gallery. The outcome is fairly creepy, like those paintings where the eyes follow you around the room.
