Every now and again we find some truly inspiring skull sculptures. We at the Skull Society welcome the superbly talented Bruce Mahalski from New Zealand. This man certainly knows how to awe us with his skull and bone creations.

Bruce creates amazing bone and skull sculptures made entirely from genuine remains. His art is not made for shock value, far from it. Rather, he has a great respect for the living and the deceased. No more so than in his most ‘Reliquary Box’ that features a real human skull. I recommend that you read his article in which he discusses skulls in art, called Human bones in art.

Bruce Mahalski series of Bone Guns remind me of the guns from the film ‘Existenz. Minus the human tooth used as a bullet.
