Another primitive piece, this time a necklace. I'm fascinated by adornment. From early pieces like this to modern cosmetics and jewelry, people have been fancying themselves up since we first figured out how. I think we should all go back to wearing animal bones and rocks.
Approx. 4 inches long x 3 inches across. Lower mandible of fox, glass beads, natural quartz crystal (removable), copper wire, leather.
Honoring the natural forces that bring the life-giving waters.
This coyote skull has been hand painted with sacred yet mysterious symbols. The drawings seem to flow like water, graceful and uninhibited. Deep blue intertwines with black for a unique and distinctive design that moves with the natural contours of the skull.
This skull is in great condition with no major damage, and all the teeth intact.
It has been expertly 'antiqued' to achieve the look of a well preserved historical artifact. All materials are new.
