Bone Smiley   Real tiny mice, shrew & vole bones  12x12cm  2024

"Bone Smiley"

A funky smiley face design created from real tiny, mice, shrew and vole bones. The outline isn't as accurate as I would have liked it be but I think it makes it look a little more quirky.

The artwork has been mounted off the background to give it a more 3D effect.


This beautiful artwork is mounted onto a matte black Fabriano card. It displayed in a 12x12cm black shadowbox frame with a matte black border.

OR you can have it displayed in the larger style frame shown in the last photo of one of my previous designs. (Please note that I need to order the frame so shipping time may take a little longer for the larger frame)


This piece features the tiniest bones I have available in my collection. They are from the youngest and smallest species remains that I find in my owl pellets.

Each artwork in this style I make is unique using a different layout of bones each time. This skull outline may be used in future pieces. This particular piece took over 13 hours to create, not including the processes that take place before the artworks are started, so it's a great price for the hours!


My artworks are made with real bones sourced ethically/naturally through wild owl pellets. The bones are dissected from the owl pellets and then they are cleaned and whitened. Then they are sorted through meticulously into my bone boxes ready to use for art.


My art process is long and tedious. Each bone has been individually selected and carefully put into place before glueing them down. Tweezers and a needle are used to carefully move the bones to make sure they work with one another and flow naturally.
