turkey skull mount, $130 including shipping
turkey skull shadowbox assemblage with objects: driftwood, human molar, found feathers, and pebbles, about 6×9″ and 3″ deep, oil paint and bone glue used in construction.
Where I live, wild turkey abound. This skull came from a hunting neighbor- they ate the turkey, but would have discarded its skull. The molar came from a dear friend of mine who had many teeth removed all at once.
The feathers come from a neighbor’s chicken run, and the pebbles and driftwood I collected at Ona Beach on the Oregon coast, west of my home. The seedpods and nut husks were collected in the southeastern US, while I was traveling.
The snail shells were collected at Marys Peak, Oregon, and the single bone on top is from a household pet- a cat, who died of age. The human molar belonged to a friend and has been sanitized.
All items have been cleaned, degreased, sealed and sanitized, then stained or dyed before inclusion in this box.
cost includes packaging, shipping with tracking and insurance.
Insurance and delicate packaging to ensure safe arrival are included in the cost of shipping. I cannot ship this internationally due to import/export laws, sorry.

St. Roch is the patron saint of dogs.
He is also a preventer of the plague.
he remained behind during the plague to treat people; he himself became ill. he went into the forest to die, but a dog (who is not named in any story) brought him bread and licked his wounds, saving him.
This is made from a grey fox skull, sea urchins, rockdove wings, and quilling done with paper I made myself. the tattered roses are preserved in glycerin and poly so they will stay just as they are. All mounted in a gilded frame. piece is for sale at this link.

I got featured on craftastrophe, which makes my weird little heart warm. Between that and weird etsy I’ve been getting a lot of “it’s freaky holy crap” kind of love lately.
I’ll be posting some more art tomorrow or later tonight- and then I’ll be busy getting ready to hang the uber-creeptastic November show.
Hope some of you can make it out on friday!
