Hand Carved Wood Skull
This wood skull is probably about 80 to 100 years old and measures 5 inches long by approximately 3 3/4 inches tall and 3 1/4 inches wide. Although its origin and purpose remain a mystery, reminders of death never go out of style. This particular memento mori appears to have been hand carved out of solid wood. It has a beautiful vein of lighter wood that runs through the middle of the skull and down the back, and an all-over patina that shows off the natural texture of the wood. A perfect gift for a macabre friend or a friendly reminder to a special someone that you are not getting any younger, this wonderful skull is sure to suggest that the dance of death unites us all.
