This completely three dimensional sugar skull is cast in solid yellow bronze with a subdued hand burnished finish. An anatomically correct skull tastefully adorned with a raised cross positioned low on the forehead upon an incised spiderweb radiating to the sides and top. The cap of the skull is embellished with a large Mexican sunflower flanked by large petaled flowers on each side. Floral stems emerge from under the chin, writhing around the mouth and jaw spouting leaves as they grow upwards filling the empty eye sockets with beautiful blossoms each with a tiny skull in the center. A crescent moon is carved on each temple and the writhing vines actually grow right off the skull into the open cutouts of the band, the bottom of which swells in width to accommodate a sculpted flaming sacred heart in high relief. The skull measures 7/8" tall and 5/8" wide. The detail is superb, even the "back" of the teeth on the inside of the ring are perfectly carved. No detail was spared in the creation of this outstanding piece of Dia de Los Muertos jewelry made exclusively for the fairer hand. Available only in a size 6 at this time.
