I recently went to Paris and found a few skulls which I wanted to share with you all – I do not know the names of the shops/artists/creators so if you recognise any then please share the names with us. I was hoping to find more but here are some of the ones I spotted, apologies for some of the blurry images.
Freelance artist Meg Coleman has some fantastic skull sculptures or in her words ‘Skull-pture’ (Nice one!). She is presently interested in the “beauty of the remnants left after life’. That is probably one of the most beautiful sentences I have read.
Meg currently has two forms of skulls available for purchase. The first and most impressive are the sculptural skull lights. These are cast to represent clear quartz crystal but also come in a variety of styles like marble, green, white or slate. I have surprisingly not seen a skull light like this before and I must say it does look rather fine. Prices are £350-£450 depending on choice of finish.
The second are skulls cast from a silicone mould that can be decorated to any effect. It’s a pretty good looking cranium as far as skulls go. Prices are £120-£250 depending on design.

These delicately cut-out skull paper sculptures have been created by Danish-born Peter Callesen. He creates a variety of work but we have decided to feature his skeleton/skull based works.
The sculptures have all been created using a blank A4 piece of paper, a medium most of us use on a daily basis and I guess that is one of the appealing factors about this art. He takes the mundane and ordinary and turns it into something simple yet magical. Sorry for sounding like a cliché but you can’t argue. The detail and skill to create these sculptures is another reason why these are so impressive. These are a great addition to the Skull Appreciation Society‘s wall. Thanks Peter!
I found Ron Garrigues site purely by accident and I was pleasantly surprised to find these beautiful bronze skull sculptures. Ron’s work is incredible and these are only a small number of his sculptures. He’s got bronze animal skull sculptures too which will soon be making their way onto our society’s wall of fame.
