Carved Jet Skull
By Lee Downey
Jet, a fossilized coal, is a durable lightweight black stone that has been mined since prehistoric times. Carved from a single large piece of rough from Siberia, this dramatic sculpture depicts a human skull naturalistically rendered and polished to a lustrous sheen. Such large specimens are increasingly difficult to obtain in today's market and this is a particularly fine example realistically rendered by an artist who comprehends how to bring out the best from this material, with monogram signature. Measures 8 x 6 x 6in. Offered in a custom-fitted Balinese fabric covered box.
