A stunning human skull with a snake made of deer antler which has wrapped itself onto the skull which has been hand-carved by a master wood carver out of a solid piece of tamarind wood. The bottom jaw and the head of the skull are two pieces which are attached by a small tamarind wood pin on each side so that the jaw can open and close. The teeth of the skull are made from cow bone and are meticulously carved to look as close to real as possible. The tamarind wood has a beautiful grain causing this skull to be a true eye-catcher.
