Relic Hound Update

October 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Right over here

Just made a new update to my Etsy shop.  Antique Micronesian spinner dolphin teeth, fossil dog teeth, Japanese Tokugawa era coins, wolf tooth amulet, and other fun things.  More will be coming (hopefully).  I also hope to have a Halloween/Fall sale at some point. 

I just have so much…stuff.  But I suppose that’s why I’m called the “relic hound”.

Latest Skull

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.

Some new artwork. Been trying to get into crafting again, and I’m experimenting with new styles and techniques. Please click the photo for more info on the piece as well as to purchase if interested.

I do a lot of work with animal parts. Both animistic work as well as craft work (usually both at the same time). I may have mentioned that in this blog before, but this is just one sample.
