Extra Large Water Buffalo Skull - natural, uncarved - Bubalus bubalis - 81×80×20 cm
2019 - Indonesia - non-CITES species

Natural buffalo skull. A unique item, very decorative.

This natural skull is a stunning home décor object that enlivens any home or restaurant. More than just a spiritual and cultural piece of art; it also tells the story of Indonesian indigenous craftsmen, who preserve the native practice of using every part of an animal to handcraft an eternal art of work. Skulls are handcrafted in Indonesia, where the skill of engraving into animal skulls is passed on from father to son. They have mastered this cunning technique and need about 4 to 5 days to engrave the different carvings into the skulls. Skull includes a rope to hang it a wall.

- Part of the tip of the skull nose has been chipped off. Please refer to pictures.
- The horns will be detached for transport purposes, and are easily reattached.
There is also a drawstring attached to the skull so that it can be mounted on a wall.
- The horns are always packed on the bottom of the box, underneath the skull. Please make sure to remove the horns before discarding of the packaging.
- Since it is a natural skull, it might have some natural minimal cracks and crevices in both the skull and the horns. This is normal. Please refer to pictures.
- Our skulls are cleaned professionally, but sometimes minor discoloration​ still occurs on the teeth. This is natural and normal, and not something we can do a lot about. Please refer to the pictures.

Length: 81cm
Width: 80cm
