Sugar Skull 12. I created this one a really long time ago, hence why it's skull 12 in my production line, but I really didn't like the way I had hollowed out the eyes and how it made the shape of the skull look and it just sat there for a long time till I could figure out just what design I wanted to paint on it.
So, recently I got this idea for a design, but I was leery to try it out on any of the skulls that I really loved, cause I didn't know just how it would work out, and this is the result. Got the design idea from a mexican ceramic monkey that we own, coupled with the designs I'd seen on some old indian art featuring the hundu swastika as featured here: [link]
I decided not to draw the actual swastika at all, because of the negative connotations that attached to it regardless of it's real meaning, but I love how the red dots in that design looked and went that way with it.
And this skull is a tad larger than my usual ones. She's 10 dollars if you're interested. Note me.
