Gregory Halili, a Philippines-born artist, has created this most beautiful series of carved pearl skulls. I think it works so well, not only because of the expert craftsmanship but also because pearls have a similar resemblance to bone so the skull actually looks like a skull. Funny that. 

Greg now lives in New Jersey where he works as an painter. Visit his profile on the Nancy Hoffman Gallery.
