The youtube link below will bring you to a video of this beautiful sculpture. Please watch this video and enjoy!
This is a bronze sculpture of a Saltwater Crocodile skull. This sculpture has been designed by Jake Richmond, who is a designer of Sooka Interior. This sculpture is part of Sooka’s Eternity of Remarkable Species collection, where Sooka’s designers capture the astonishing beauty of endangered animals in a static state. Well aware of the direct impact of mankind on the environment, they create respectful alternatives to the authentic vulnerable species, such as the Saltwater Crocodile. Just as enchanting but less of an impact.
Our bronze sculptures are made from upcycled metals such as old pipelines. Our craftsmen and women collect this scrap waste which they then put in an oven at very high temperatures. Once the scrap waste pieces melt, the new raw material is ready to be used. We then use this virgin material to make our bronze sculptures. As bronze is a very eco and labour-intensive material to mine, we feel it makes much more sense to reuse the material that has already been created than to extract it – again. By doing so we are trying to close at least one waste loop.
TRANSPARENCY & WHO MADE IT
Lastly, when it comes to our working conditions, we work exclusively with Indonesian craftsmen and women in both Bali and Java. This piece specifically was made in Java, Indonesia. All of our craftsmen and women get paid a living wage that exceeds what Indonesian Law requires. Their income is enough for a comfortable home, food, education, ceremonies, and more.
