This skull necklace was originally conceived by a friend of mine who asked me to design a skull for them based on the moko facial tattoos of the Māori tribe in New Zealand. It took a few attempts to get it right, but I really like how it turned out.

So was my friend. One happy customer.

The history of the Moko, and indeed the Māori, is as colorful as it is fascinating. Historically in Māori culture, many if not most high-ranking persons received moko, and it was considered an honor and sign of huge respect to receive the tattoos. Receiving moko constituted an important milestone between childhood and adulthood, and was accompanied by many rites and rituals. Another reason for the practice in traditional times was to make a person more attractive to the opposite sex - something this necklace hopes to live up to.

Completely hand carved, the spiral design gives the skull a real individuality and unique vibe, another Lost Apostle original. The hole for the chain is incorporated into the motif and gives the skull a great balance - it really does look quite something from every angle.

The skull is cast in solid white bronze and is then thickly plated in silver. After finishing and polishing my hand, finally the skull is given an aged look to really bring out all the details. One very cool skull.

The skull measures 1/2" across and a little under 3/4" high. A great size, amazing detail and completely original. I've hung this one on a 24" gunmetal chain.
