Latest Skull

20120930-125024.jpg

The latest skull I’ve cleaned myself from its original raw state (essentially, a severed head sans skin). This came from a large male black coyote from New York State. I pride myself on being able to keep the nasals relatively intact. I’ll take a full photo of him once he’s fully articulated and all his teeth and jawbones are glued back in place.

In various animistic traditions, the skull was considered the most powerful part of an animal (human or non), the seat of the spirit and consciousness.

This fellow here is going to a fellow “spirit worker” and psychopomp once I’m done with him.

    That is beautiful work. Some day I am going to get a wolf skull, and a goat skull for my altar… someday 🙂
