I really like how this monkey skull worked out. It’s a miniature replica of a carved crab-eating macaque monkey skull from the Dayak tribe of the jungles of Borneo. The carvings on this skull, as in a lot of Dayak art, are symbolic of their shamanic culture, and represent aspects of their belief system and tribal genesis. Capturing the detail of these carvings was really important - there's a real authenticity to this piece and I love how it looks in bronze.

The chain passes through a hole through the skull, the opening of which I incorporated into the design. He’s got a fair set of fangs on him and nice detailing around the hoods of his eye sockets. A great piece for someone looking for a really original skull.

The monkey skull measures 22mm from the top to his jaw, and 16mm across the widest point.

It is completely hand carved (this one took days), cast in the finest jewelers bronze, and then patinated. This process darkens the recesses of the design, but is later polished off the relief surfaces – it really makes the details stand out and brings the piece to life. Once finished, we then apply a special process to the skull which stops it from tarnishing. Unlike untreated bronze which can darken over time, this skull will look fantastic for years.

I hung this Monkey on a 24" gold plated curb chain. There's just something about this one I love.
