The Steenbok, a tiny buck native to South and Eastern Africa, this slight skull is light and a smaller option for those looking for a little pop in a more confined space.
This graceful skull is adorned with a pattern that offers a great black and white contrast and I feel the pattern really compliments the skulls shape.
A perfect pairing piece I recommend hanging it on any wall or in a smaller space for impact. 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 steenbok skulls, so please be in touch if you want to pre-order.
