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!
This coconut skull has found it’s way into the dark folds of the Skull Appreciation Society and we all welcome you. This fiendish mask-like skull was carved by skull nut (badum tish) Scott Middlehurst, a self taught artists hailing from Canada. Scott has made me aware that these skulls can be made available for purchase but do take a month to create from start to finish (includes getting the coconuts). If you dig this skull as much as we do then we recommend popping over to Scotts Facebook page (liking it of course) and get in touch with regards to pricing.
Hopefully we will see many more skull creations in the near future.
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.
Tired of small paperweights? Then why not splash out on this hand carved skull made from bamboo leaf agate. It weighs about 2.8 kgs, is a one-off design and will burn a $1250.00 size hole in your pocket.
Can be purchased from Stone Age Sedona
These cute wood skulls (that’s what I said) are created from pine with a lid that uncovers a secret compartment. Well maybe not so secret but it’s still cool. I know what quite a few people would use this for.
These carved wood skulls are available in either white or unpainted and measure 14cm in diameter. Both can be purchased from Acne Jr for €68.90

These lovely, shiny and oh so large carved skulls are created by Thought and Memory and are sold on a first come, first serve basis and on that note of course they are sold out. Man, that Jaguar skull is amazingly carved from obsidian and based on a real casting of a Jaguar skull.
There is also a variety of carved Wolf skulls that look long, sleek and wicked. There is one caved from obsidian like the Jaguar skull but there are also versions carved from Brazilian Agate and Carnelian Agate.
They are beautiful.
These evil looking skateboard skulls were created by Beto Janz as a way of spreading the word of a skate shop called Ultra Skate that he was promoting. Yes it’s advertsing but we do a similar thing with Mr Four Fingers in our own Left and Found Art. I would have loved to find one of these skateboard skulls.
Upon finding an article at Inhabitat about these skateboard skulls I looked at Beto Janz portfolio and was happy to find yet more skulls. Yaassss.

This transformation mask, carved from cedar wood, is inspired by traditional Native American masks. These masks are normally used in tribals dances with the outer mask being an animal visage that opens to reveal an inner carved human face. This is Anthony Santellas version and what a superb one it is.
This is a beautifully carved skull. The artwork is Tibetan and this is definitely one of the better carved skulls on SAS. This skull was found on 9WOWS.
The Asmat Tribe, from Irian Jaya Indonesia, collect and worship ancestor skulls to remember their deceased family members. The tribes all decorate the skulls differently, in this case the Asmat Tribe use feathers, seeds and carved sea shell rings to decorate their skulls.
We found these amazing skulls on Tribal Art Asia’s website.
