box is approx 10x10"
I had a strong feeling that this dog led a very difficult life; when found, the skull was worn, ragged at the edges, as if it had been sawn or gnawed at. I felt that if I could have given this dog a wish while it lived, I would have.
Of course I cannot be sure of the provenance or history of the animal; I can only speak to the feeling I had, that while I worked on it with love and care and caution, it felt glad, and appreciated the way I worked with it.
process description for this piece:
This skull took a few months to process. using an insect-cleaning method, and then antiseptic and degreasing soaks repeated over time. I use luthier's bone glue, which I heat and cure for thickness, to mount everything. All parts of this piece are archivally preserved, sealed, and clean.
