I purchased this as well as an extra 5 pieces and they are absolutely lovely! They each come in their own bag with the name of the item and either where they were found or a fact. I love all of mine and I will be purchasing more very soon!!

Welcome to Shadyufo Studios! My name is Emily and I am an artist and natural history enthusiast.

Items for sale in this shop are pieces that I have found in nature or at flea markets, yard sales, antique stores, and even online! I do not harm animals for their parts but instead salvages pieces that often times would be thrown away by farmers, hunters, or taxidermists. It's a chance to give these pieces a new "life."

The skulls I paint are thoroughly cleaned before a brush ever touches them. Peroxide baths sterilize and whiten the bone and makes it perfectly safe to handle. An incredible amount of detail go into each piece and while it is a very time-consuming process I do my best to keep them as affordable as possible.
