Tattooed Leather Skull
This Tattooed Leather Skull, by Dionne Marshall from Punctured Artefact, is called ‘Rhythm of life’ and was featured at our skull exhibition, Celebrabis Vitae.
It features 3 skulls (front, side and the mandible) set within a geometric hourglass and falling sand. Alongside a few of my symbolic favorites … botanicals, snake, mandala, cosmos.

The process is immensely time consuming, with layers and layers of fine lines to get the right weights. It is rather a labour of love in more ways than one! The nature of the material means the needle bounces and cuts and tears into the leather, making a smooth line pretty tricky!
