Carved Soapstone Calavera Skull, Small
Forget Halloween and bad horror movies; skulls play a big role in cultural celebrations throughout North, South and Central America. Believed to carry wisdom and memories into the afterlife, skulls are...awesome!
These skulls are hand-carved from natural soapstone and while each will vary slightly in size, they average 7/8" in height and 1 1/8" in length. Colors for each skull will vary, too, based on the block of stone but most feature great marbling in cream, gray, rose and brown. Please let us choose a very special one for you.
A terrific addition to an altar or retablo project, these little guys can also serve as small objet de art and/or celebration of Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead.
Hand-carved in Peru.
