This carved skull is a stunning home décor object that enlivens any home or restaurant. More than just a spiritual and cultural piece of art; it also tells the story of Indonesian indigenous craftsmen, who preserve the native practice of using every part of an animal to handcraft an eternal art of work. This skull is handcrafted in Indonesia, where the skill of engraving into animal skulls is passed on from father to son. They have mastered this cunning technique and need about 5 to 6 days to engrave detailed carvings such as this sample.

Engraved is a stunning mandala motif. Representing wholeness, the infinite, and the divine, Mandala is more than a geometric circle. It’s the universal symbol for the world within our minds and the world outside. It is used in yoga practices to aid in meditation and ignite spiritual bloom.
