Sacred Skulls

Each of these sacred pieces are built on a real skull. The leather is molded around the form, then tooled, sculpted and painted. We can build a piece on your skull or use one of ours. It is our way of reincarnating these beings into another powerful (art) form.

Magpie Steals Buffalo Spirit

On this buffalo skull transformation, this single piece of leather down the front has been carved, sculpted and painted to tell a story. One of the bronze painted horn tips is turquoise and the other horn tip is not - the magpie is holding a turquoise stone in his mouth that he has "stolen" from the buffalo!
