Gold skulls & bones mandala  Real vole skulls & vole & mice bones  12x12cm 2024

A beautiful golden mandala made from real tiny skulls and bones

This mandala features 6 real vole skulls, 12 vole jaws, tiny angular teeth and a couple of other bone types.

The skulls and jaws have been hand painted in a beautiful golden colour, the other bones and teeth have been left a lovely white to create this stunning design.

My tiny bone mandalas are created with real bones sourced ethically/naturally through wild owl pellets. The owl pellets are dissected for the skulls and bones then the bones are cleaned and whitened over several days. I then go through the bones sorting them into different bone types using tweezers, then they go into my bone boxes ready to use for my artwork.

My art process is very long and tedious. Each skull and bone has been individually selected, measured 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.

The mandala is mounted onto a matte black card Fabriano card and is displayed in a 12x12cm black shadowbox frame with a black matte border.

 

Please note that the golden colour may differ due to the lighting and camera used.

The glass has been taken out for the photos.
