A totem to offer protection from all harm, both seen and unseen...
The wild boar is untamed and un-tameable. It is fierce in battle, whether for food, territory, or to protect its young. This skull features unique patterning all over, with a strange symmetry that offers both strength and confidence.
This vintage boar skull was once a teaching specimen, and its now hand-painted with natural inks applied with a sharpened wooden stick. Each piece is unique with different meanings and symbols.
It has been expertly 'antiqued' to achieve the look of a well preserved historical artifact. All materials are new.
This skull is in nice condition with minimal wear. Artifacts are rarely found in perfect condition, and the wear to this one makes for an authentic look.
The total length is about 12 inches, width is 5.5 inches.
I finished this drawing right now, because I was testing a character, who's a trucker (another story only in my head but not on the paper). Yeah, he is this man with the beer and the cigarette. But I'm not sure if I like him... I guess he doesn't look like the trucker I have in my head.. but it is only a test, it can change. I did it very fast, I should have timed the process, haha.
