THE STORY
This carved 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. This skull is 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.

Engraved is a traditional ​floral motif.

THE DISCLAIMER
- The horns will be detached for transport purposes, and are easily reattached. There is also a drawstring attached to the back of the skull so that it can be mounted on the wall.
- The horns are always packed in the bottom of the box, underneath the skull. Please make sure to remove the horns before discarding 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 the pictures.
- Our skulls are cleaned professionally, but sometimes minor discolouration still occurs on the teeth. This is natural and normal, and not something we can do a lot about. Please refer to the pictures.
