Theres nothing that says ‘Africa’ louder than a lofty pair of horns and this gloriously weighty skull is no exception!
The stately size and weight of it is impressive, your eyes are lead gracefully across and down the front of the smooth surface of this amazing specimen.
A perfect feature piece for any entrance hall, entertainment area, guest or master room. Is hung on the wall from a hidden and highly durable hanging mechanism.
Over five coats of pearl acrylic paint encapsulate the skull giving it a truly ethereal appearance. Each line and dot carefully placed by hand in fine black ink, the patterns are mirrored gracefully onto each side of the skull, completely spontaneously. The artist follows the natural shape of the skull when drawing the patterns and uses symbolism to portray what she thinks might relate to the spirit of the animal. Gold paint is applied to the teeth of the skull to give it a regal finish. Varnish is then applied to the skull to set all designs firmly in place, also offering a protection against any moisture and to ensure maximum durability.
All Skulls are a product of natural death, found in game parks and then very rigorously cleaned before painted.
I am able to source more buffalo skulls so please be in touch if you want to pre-order.
