"Calveria" Skull made from real mice, shrew and vole bones  20x20cm 2023

"Calveria" Real bone skull

Created from real tiny, mice, shrew and vole bones.


The sockets and nose of the skull have been mounted slightly away from the background to give them a hollow look. The skull has then been mounted off the background to give it a more 3D effect.

This beautiful artwork is mounted onto a lush, matte black Fabriano card. It displayed in a 20x20cm black shadowbox frame with a matte black border. The glass has been removed for the photos.


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 20 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.
